Representatives from the fisheries industry, research institutes and management institutions in Norway and Russia are meeting this week in a joint effort to combat marine plastic pollution in the Barents Sea. Norut and Kola Science Center are organising the seminar in Murmansk followed by a beach clean-up in Teriberka.

The different sectors of the Norwegian bioeconomy show a large variation in value added, between the sectors, over time, in the composition of value added, and not least between the bioeconomy of the Norwegian counties.

Drones

Icebergs is a risk to all ships navigating in the high Arctic. Norut has developed a system for real-time detection and monitoring of sea ice, using UAVs.

New job

Norut is searching for new staff! A Research Director and Senior Research Scientists in social science disciplines, a PhD position on oil-in-ice and an engineer specialising in unmanned aircraft systems are all on Norut’s wish list.

Oil

The Norut companies in Narvik and Tromsø don’t meet halfway when they conduct joint experiments, but rather in Hamburg. Using a large tank designed for ship testing, they are combining their expertise in oil behaviour in ice with remote sensing and drone technology. The goal is to map oil spills in sea ice-covered waters.
