Scale-ups in the Nordics – Statistical Portrait 2008-2016

'Scale-ups in the Nordics – Statistical Portrait 2008-2016' has been carried out by the Nordic national statistical institutes in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.
  • 28/02/2005 Room for Humans

    Establish and develop a new approach for the Nordic property and construction industry – while there are still opportunities to guide this. Go in advance of the rest of Europe in working for change that entails very profound consequences for both society and the individual. It is a process of change which will take time since it will face powerful resistance.
  • 31/12/2005 CO2 uptake during the concrete lifecycle

    This documentation should be used for environmental assessment of concrete buildings and structures, and to evaluate the effect of concrete carbonation on the overall CO2 emissions from cement and concrete production in the Nordic countries.
  • 25/02/2005 NEST - Nordic CoE for Smart Textiles and Wearable Technology

  • 25/02/2005 GJUTDESIGN 2005 - Design kvalitet och NDT för gjutna utmattningsbelastade komponenter

    In order to gain a competitive advantage in the world marketplace, Nordic industries need to press forward in several critical research areas. For cast load-carrying and work producing components and structures there is a need to integrate efficient FE based analysis tools, reliable information on defect size, shape and location, and expertise on how complex variable amplitude and multi-axial loading influence fatigue damage in cast materials.
  • 23/02/2005 Protein isolation from herring

  • 31/12/2004 Nordic Network on Weather Protection Systems (WPS)

    The most important achievements of the project are a well established and self financed Nordic network and the first version of a set of tools for the trade.
  • 06/03/2004 SMEs and the new role of academic research in four Nordic countries

    A summary review of the main findings of the study shows that while the existing and proposed policy reforms have been extensive, there remain a number of important gaps. There are important differences in what kinds of recommendations can work in the respective countries and the country studies provide ample detail on the particular situation in this respect.
  • 03/03/2004 High tech spinn offs - limited impact!

    The project studies the creation and performance of new establishments and enterprises in the Nordic countries, utilising administrative register data compiled by the national statistical agencies on enterprises, establishments and employees. Among the many different aspects brought up during the study, the central theme concerns how one specific category of new establishments perform, namely those that can be identified as “high-tech spin-offs”.
  • 03/03/2004 Exploratory Study for Brain Disease Therapy

    The goal of the project was to set up a Nordic consortium that would plan a new approach in studying brain disease therapies and mechanisms. The indication areas was restricted to four major diseases namely stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and brain trauma.
  • 03/03/2004 Conference summary - "The Nordic Region as a frontrunner in Research and Innovation"

    ”The Nordic region as a frontrunner in research and innovation” was the theme of the conference hosted by the Nordic Council of Ministers, Iceland (its chair) and the Nordic Innovation Centre on 10 June 2004. Delegates included decision- and policymakers in the Nordic innovation system. An important aim of the conference was to discuss and generate feedback to the newly presented policy document, ”Proposals for a collaborative Nordic programme on innovation policy 2005-2010” (”The Book of Innovation”).
  • 03/03/2004 Concrete for the Environment - a Nordic Network

    The main objective was to establish a permanent Nordic Network that will create a common understanding of and formulation of criteria for sustainable concrete structures, promote the development and use of sustainable concrete structures and finally promote the use of concrete for the benefit of the environment
  • 03/03/2004 Commercialisation services for small and innovative companies

    Since the project start Nordic BIC Forum has taken its position as part of Nordic innovation infrastructure. During project years, the network has been expanded and this has made it possible for new members to join the Forum and benefit from it.
  • 01/03/2004 Art and Design Universities - Innovation Network (preparatory survey)

    The purpose of this preliminary survey has been to review the current status of innovation activities of art and design institutions in the Nordic and Baltic region. First of all, the survey aims to highlight the innovation supporting services provided by the most important art and design universities in Nordic and Baltic countries. Secondly, the fact how design is integrated to the national innovation systems is analysed from each country’s point of view.
  • 28/02/2004 The potential in e-business has been far from exploited

    Over 4,300 enterprises – with at least 10 employees – in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden have participated in this survey of E-business 2003. E-business covers all business applications of internet technology, the purpose of which is to improve, change or promote efficiency in, the enterprise and organisation. E-business therefore includes all communication via the internet; internally in the enterprise via an intranet and externally via an extranet with customers, suppliers and partners.
  • 28/02/2004 Productivity studies in Nordic building- and construction industry

    The background for the project is that there in all Nordic countries has been an increased attention to the question of productivity in building and construction industry (B&C industry) in the later years.
  • 28/02/2004 Wood components in steel and concrete buildings

  • 28/02/2004 Non-Destructive Testing Methods for Integrity Determination of Concrete Structures

    Today, it is well recognised that methods that can be used to do assessments of existing structures without the need for destructive tests has the potential to become increasingly important tools as a part of work being invested to structures. The companies that offer these methods, however, experience difficulties to sell services that rely on such methods.
  • 28/02/2004 Inclusion Engineering and Grain Size Control of Steels - INGROS

  • 25/02/2004 Monitoring corrosion in district heating systems

    Corrosion problems in district heating systems in the Nordic countries are rare. Nonetheless, corrosion is occasionally still responsible for leak problems and an important factor for process control and asset management. Thus, corrosion should be monitored as other important process parameters such as pH, conductivity and dissolved oxygen.
  • 25/02/2004 Nordic Biofibre network established

    The Nordic Biofibre Network - has so far created much better cooperation between Nordic industrial and academy actors in several bio-fibre branches. That is especially true for branches like pulp and paper and packaging. Representatives of these branches have been very active in the network. There are indications and the potential is large, that the network in the future may contribute very much to an improvement of the international business climate for small and semi-large Nordic companies.
