Our objective in this undertaking has been to make a contribution to the development of innovation policies in the Nordic countries.
  • 03/03/2003 GoodNIP - Good Nordic Innovation Policies

    Innovation is considered the engine of technological change and economic growth. Hence innovation policy lays much of the foundation for the future welfare development of the Nordic countries. It is therefore important that they develop sensible, coherent strategies in this area, as well as a set of policy measures that meet the specific needs of each countrys industry.

  • 01/03/2003 Sustainable tourism development

    The main goal of the project was to establish a long-term working model and project concept for a sustainable arctic tourism development. In order to reach this goal, the current practises of Northern tourism enterprises and their needs – current as well as future - were analysed and compiled. Special emphasis was placed on identifying successful tools and practices to improve the SMEs sustainability.
  • 28/02/2003 E-market qualification and training

    Electronic marketplaces with several buyers and many sellers will become increasingly important to enable companies to successfully reach their target markets, and effectively buy and sell products.

  • 25/02/2003 Nordic MEMS - Status and possibilities

    Microsystems, or small, functional components, will be the key components in systems realizing “the instrumentation society” we are entering during the next 5-10 years. There are numerous possible applications for microsystems. As a breakthrough technology, allowing unparalleled synergy between previously unrelated fields such as biology and microelectronics, many new microsystems applications will emerge, expanding beyond that which is currently identified or known.
  • 25/02/2003 Innovations in Ink-Jet Technology (NATTKLINIK)

    It is the scope of this Nordic R&D project on "Innovative development of the ink-jet technology" to utilise the outcome of national research programmes and to establish a Nordic network of research institutes, material suppliers, printer manufacturers and end users of the ink-jet technology.

  • 28/02/2002 Green Electronics Packaging and Environmental Data Flow Management

    The development in electronics has resulted in products with rapidly increasing functionality, lower weight and less volume, giving users big advantages in the use phase. With its complex composition, an increasing number of new applications, shorter product life, use of hazardous substances and lack of data on the material contents, electronic and electrical (EE) products constitute a threat to both man and the environment.
  • 28/02/2002 System on Chip Prestudy report

    The development of the information society has had a major effect on all industries. To stay competitive, SMEs have to invest in human talent capable of creating innovative information technology based products. As a world leader in IT development and Internet use, the Nordic countries are a dynamic test bed of creativity for pioneering new IT solutions.
