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.
  • 28/02/2011 Soot sensors for efficient combustion and low emissions - SootSensII

    Due to the serious health hazard in urban air from nanosized soot particles, legislation is raised to very small allowed emission limits for example for diesel powered heavy duty trucks.
  • 22/03/2011 Nordic Network NTP – Healthy Choices

    Various stakeholders; politicians, municipalities, school authorities, public health authorities, food industry, catering services, school chefs and researchers share responsibility of delivering quality meals in schools
  • 21/03/2011 Storytelling and Destination Development

    In each Nordic country, stories exist on which a storytelling approach to destination development and marketing can be based.
  • 16/03/2011 Statistics on Cross Border Venture Capital Investments in the Nordic Region

    Cross-border investments play an important role in the Nordic countries and in Europe in general. However, existing published statistics on cross-border investments are quite limited. More in-depth statistics on cross-border investments would be valuable.
  • 10/03/2011 How Public Procurement can stimulate Innovative Services – new study

    Public procurement of services is trapped in conservative ways of thinking where selection of services is mainly based on price alone. A new mind set and clear incentives for procuring, is crucial if the procurer aim to use public procurement as a tool for stimulating innovative services.
  • 27/01/2011 Bilberry - Towards functional food markets

    Wild berries are a characteristic part of the Northern nature. Wild bilberries are also a rich and valuable resource that has not yet been exploited in a satisfactory level.
  • 25/02/2011 ENZYCOAT - Oxygen scavenging and aroma affecting enzymes embedded in barrier coatings

  • 25/02/2011 Production of micro algea-based products

    Algae culture technology appears to be an exciting and future-oriented business area. An increasing number of commercial operators has been identified globally and micro algae represent – globally – perhaps the largest remaining biological resource for development and industrial activity in the years ahead.
  • 25/02/2011 Nanotechnology in Northern Europe Congress and Exhibition

  • 25/02/2011 Lead-free soldering guideline (NoNE)

    Lead was one of the earliest heavy metals to be identified as a toxic environmental pollutant in widespread use throughout the world. Its use has been or is being phased out in many applications -- paints and leaded petrol, for example -- but the electrical and electronics (EE) sector has proved a stubborn case, in part because lead is still a key component of tin-lead solders used in equipment and components, notably printed circuit boards (PCBs).
  • 24/02/2011 MARIFUNC - Nordic Network for Marine Functional Food

    The role of food as an agent for improving health has initiated the development of new classes of food - functional foods. Nutrients and other bioactive substances isolated from fish as well as fish in itself can be used as ingredients for functional foods. There are several obstacles to overcome before the potential in fish can be exploited.
  • 24/02/2011 Foods and satiety - Substantiation of weight regulation and satiety related health claims on foods

    Risks of diabetes, cardiovascular disease and hypertension rise continuously with increasing weight, creating a huge overlap between the prevention of obesity and the prevention of a variety of chronic diseases. New EU-legislation allows the use of weight regulation and satiety-related health claims on foods, if sufficient scientific evidence exists behind the claims. This offers new opportunities to the Nordic food industry.
  • 24/02/2011 Nordic Functional Food - A healthy choice

    In the Nordic countries, the food industry is of significant importance to the economies. Strong cultural traditions mixed with high quality have been its strength, resulting in good reputation. However, that is not enough in order to be competitive in the global food market. The industry has to carefully observe the rapid developments in the food sector, which makes new thinking and innovations essential.
  • 23/02/2011 SMEs commercializing healthy nutrition

    Many of the most successful products and concepts in the healthy nutrition business worldwide have been brought to market by fairly small companies. In general, little is known about Nordic SMEs active in functional foods and health ingredients.
  • 23/02/2011 Processing for food safety

    The Nordic Council of Ministers recommends all the Nordic countries to participate actively to solve problems of common interest to ensure safe food of high quality through a sustainable production. All the Nordic countries, and Nordic Industrial Fund, are running research programmes on food, and each programme is worth in the region of 15-30 mill NOK/year.
  • 23/02/2011 Soot sensors for a healthy environment (SootSens I)

    Nanosized soot particles are a serious health hazard in urban air. They can penetrate deep into the lungs and their fat solubility makes possible their accumulation in other organs such as the brain. Legislation has therefore continuously reduced the allowable emission levels and raised requirements for reporting the status of the exhaust system (OBD, on board diagnostics) in diesel powered vehicles.
  • 23/02/2011 Clean Nordic and Baltic sky - Feasibility study

    Background Demand for air travel is growing rapidly. Shortfalls in capacity and other constraints on the efficiency of airports and aircraft operations have negatively impacted the environment. The need to enhance efficiency without increase in emissions, within finite airspace and airport resources while still ensuring high levels of safety, has grown considerably. This feasibility study is the first initiative for co-operation between air navigation service providers (ANSP), airports, airline companies and industry.
  • 21/02/2011 Nordic Network of User-Driven Innovation and Livinglabbing

    How to manage innovation: A new online toolbox for user driven innovation and Living Labs guides you on how to set up, manage, evaluate and govern multi-stakeholder networks.
  • 18/02/2011 Future Nordic Concrete Architecture

    Where is the concrete architecture heading? And in which way should the technology be developed in order to bring the concrete architecture up front? These and other questions have been asked and answered in this Nordic report. The project's main goal was to promote continued innovation in the Nordic concrete architecture.
