    PIPE Pelagic Industry Processing Effluents Innovative and Sustainable Solutions2015Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Process waters generated during production of acid marinated and old fashion marinated herring at the primary and the secondary producers were subjected to compositional analyses and fractionation. Samples were taken whilst storing, filleting, brining and marinating herring. The strategies followed a targeted approach for specific process water streams. Ceramic membrane technology (Utrafiltration, UF) as well as electrochemistry (Electrofloculation, EF) were tested separately and in combination to recover biomolecules from the richest process waters. The performance of the two technologies UF & EF were compared and the most promising technology (UF) was scaled up and investigated further at the pilot scale on site for selected process waters.

    Compounds such as fatty acids, protein, peptides amino acids, vitamins, trace elements, salt and pH were quantified in the process waters before and after the EF and UF separation treatments. In two studies, fractions recovered during UF-treatment were separated further and characterized for peptides, polyphenols and antioxidant capacity in vitro (test tubes) and in food systems as herring glazing agents or as additives in herring mince. The quality of the fractions was also estimated by performing a selection of functionality tests including emulsifying, and foaming properties. Permeates from UF-separation were considered for biotechnological applications since they are highly dense in nutrients. Experiments were performed to evaluate the fractions as growth media for microalgae. The cost for implementing UF using ceramic membranes was investigated. A full cost benefit analysis was performed aligned with the cost of technology installation and the cost of effluent discharge and treatment. In addition the market potential for recovered biomolecules in the Nordic countries was evaluated for herring producers and for other fish feed or food processing companies.

    Abstract [en]

    Wild berries are a characteristic part of the Northern nature. Wild berries are also a rich and valuable resource that has not yet been exploited in a satisfactory level. Approximately 90–95 per cent of the whole wild berry crop yield is left unpicked in the Nordic forests every year. The challenges of the wild berry utilization are similar in Nordic countries - the logistics of berry picking including traceability, fragmented sector structure and the high share of unprocessed raw material in export.

    Scalable Consumer Content in the Future Digital Environment2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    A Nordic consortium has studied IPR related obstacles and opportunities that digitalisation brings out with regard to scalable consumer contents in innovative industries. The focus was on growth, internationalisation and cross-sector innovations. Of all intellectual property rights (IPR) the project emphasized the copyright regime, but industrial rights, like patents and trademarks, were also taken into consideration. The consortium included academic partners in Finland, Denmark, and Sweden. They each had their subprojects that were tightly linked together and accomplished in parallel. Each subproject had its own scientific viewpoint on the Nordic innovative industries.

    The key findings of the project are:

    • The Danish, Swedish and Finnish IP laws are similar to a large extent. They have common historical backgrounds, but they are also essentially regulated by international treaties and EU directives. Therefore, the Nordic countries don’t have too much liberty to radically renew the IPR system by themselves – even though businesses would appreciate a more modern IPR regime.
    • Related or neighbouring rights are a very fragmented and difficult entity to perceive. It seems generally quite random when a thing is protected by a related right and when it is not. They should be clarified by identifying the unified basis of the various related rights and by developing legislation or at least its interpretation in the direction of general lessons and principles rather than that of casuistic and fragmented rules.
    • Age rating systems are unnecessarily complicated and disunited.
    • The Danish, Swedish and Finnish TV production and gaming industries prefer arbitration over civil court litigation.
    • The Danish, Swedish and Finnish IP contracts in the TV production and gaming industries prefer full exclusivity over partly exclusivity.
    • Electrodermal activity (EDA) in combination with eye-tracking measurement provides new opportunities for marketing practitioners and scholars interested in studying emotional arousal and its influence on behavior. It enables to record moment-to-moment arousal. It allows to rule out cognitive biases by which self-reports may be affected. It captures arousal even when it is unconsciously experienced. Nevertheless, it should not been seen as a mere replacement of self-reports of arousal. Rather, the role of physiologically measured arousal vis-à-vis self-assessed arousal is an avenue for future research.

    We summarize our policy recommendations in the following:

    • The Nordic countries should harmonize their intellectual property laws and licensing policies further than the European Union has been able to do so far. Especially, differences in copyright thresholds as well as the fragmented and unjustified system of related rights create annoying business obstacles.
    • In licensing, the creative industries can learn from the best practices form other creative areas.
    • The Nordic countries should remove unnecessary differences in their age ratings in the creative areas.
    • The music industry should understand that humans instinctively act on impulses from the primal cord. These impulses generate various reactions which affect how we feel. Music together with scent, is one of very few impulses humans can protect themselves from that will have a direct effect on human well-being.
    • Apply a more scientific approach to understand how music affects people in real life settings.
    • In retail settings, a pleasant customer experience is key for survival.
    • Music can be used to shape behaviour in a good way, eg. more healthy living. Applying more scientific methods to accomplish this is beneficial for society.

    The Future in Design - the competitiveness and industrial dynamics of the Nordic design industry2005Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The design industry is a small but important growth industry. The Nordic governments must make more of an effort to meet the needs represented by this sector. The ripple effects from the design industry to other commercial activities are formidable. Network collaboration, internationalization strategies and improvements in education are just some of the measures that might be appropriate at national Nordic level.

    Abstract [en]

    In this report we analyze board diversity and its impact on corporate performance. We investigate the 500 largest companies from Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. This report reveals that Scandinavian boards are surprisingly homogenous in terms of gender and nationality, whereas the age distribution is more diverse. The low level of board diversity in terms of gender and nationality in the Scandinavian countries seems puzzling given the participation of women in the workforce and the internationalization of the work force of Nordic firms.

    Nordic Entrepreneurship Check 20162016Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Although the Nordic countries have innovative economies with a skilled and well educated population, entrepreneurship culture has not been our strongest feature. 

    Several efforts have been made over the last years to strengthen this culture, but there are still significant systemic and competence challenges for startups and scaleups to grow on international markets.  

    The Nordic Entrepreneurship Check 2016 report offers an extensive mapping and analysis of the current state of the Nordic entrepreneurial ecosystem and benchmark it against the entrepreneurship ecosystems in London, Amsterdam and Berlin. 

    Furthermore, the report offers policy recommendations and suggests activities to improve the Nordic entrepreneurship ecosystem and Nordic collaboration in the field of entrepreneurship.

    We hope the report can serve as a tool for entrepreneurs, investors and policy makers to navigate and strengthen the Nordic entrepreneurship ecosystem to improve the level of innovation and competitiveness of Nordic companies looking to grow.

    Creating value from bioresources: Innovation in Nordic Bioeconomy2014Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The objectives of this study were to identify the innovation-oriented challenges as well as areas with high growth potential within the Nordic bioeconomy. The study produced background data concerning the volume and constituents of bioeconomy in the Nordic countries using NACE codes. According to the estimate, the total turnover of the key bioeconomy sectors in Nordic countries is roughly 184 000 M€, this is 10% of the total economy. Key findings from the business ecosystem analysis show that market access is the key step to successful bioeconomy innovation, along with end user involvement and utilization of existing infrastructure. Areas within bio-based chemicals, biomaterials, biofules and bioenergy, biorefineries, resource-efficiency and industrial symbiosis and services based on ecosystem services havehigh innovation and growth potential of bioeconomy.

    The obstacles of innovation in Nordic bioeconomy are lack of capital and funding, unstable operating environment due to changing regulation, market access and lack of number of actors involved in the ecosystems. Areas for further development to better tackle the identified obstacles include networking and developing a common understanding of the roles of different stakeholders, making processes for seeking support and financing easier for SMEs and promoting cross-sector transfer of existing or new applications for existing processes. Venture capitalists should be included in the networks to ensure they are better able to recognize the potential of commercial viable bioeconomy concepts. More focus may also be needed to link the support to finding commercially viable applications with the markets and customers.

    Abstract [en]

    The project aim is to help the participants to a leading position in the field of utilizing algae for energy purposes and for commercial exploitation of high value compounds from algae. An additional aim is to increase the synergy and facilitating collaboration between the participants involved in the project and thereby increase their ability to compete in this new field.

    Algae are the largest un-exploited biomass resource, which possess vast potential as resource for an array of different applications includingsustainable energy carriers, chemicals, pharmaceuticals and ingredients for the food and feed industry. Industrial scale utilization of marine algae requires intensive development ofgrowth, harvest and conditioning systems that secure reliable delivery of large amount of biomass at the right time, quality and condition. A long innovative process is necessary tobe able to scale up the algae production to meet the increasing demand for biomass for many different purposes.

    This project is a network project with focus on a majority of industrial partners in dialogue with research institutions. The network will increase theability of the involved industries to evaluate their business opportunities for production based on algae raw materials, and the network will strengthen the cooperation andsparring between the Nordic partners. In addition the newsletters and the website will give a large network for algae activities in the North Atlantic area including England, Scotland.Ireland, Faroe Island, Greenland and the east coast of Canada.

    Abstract [en]

    The ability to innovate is key for the competitiveness of Nordic SMEs in a globalizing economy. Especially because of the high wage level, innovation provides a more promising strategy than competition aimed at achieving the lowest costs. Understood in a broad context, innovativeness is not restricted to high-tech industries alone but can also be achieved by traditional low-tech sectors.

    APRICOT - Automated Pinbone Removal in Cod and Whitefish2015Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The objective of this project was to develop an automated process system (FleXicut) for detection and removal of pinbones. FleXicut incorporates these two critical processing steps in one machine. • High resolution X-ray technology is used to locate the bones with extremely high accuracy, down to 0.2 mm pinbones and software to guide water jets during cutting for pinbone removal. Previous work has revealed that low resolution sensors do not fulfill requirements regarding sensitivity in bone detection. • The water-jets are very flexible, enabling the FleXicut to perform a variety of cutting patterns. The angle cutting option allows it to follow the curved lines of the bone frame very closely, thereby further reducing pinbone material.

    FleXicut is also equipped with a built-in blade cutter, to optionally cut the tail piece. With the X-ray scanning and water-jet cutting performed on the same belt, there is no risk of movement between the bone detection and cutting processes, which ensures a superb level of cutting accuracy based on the bone location.

    Automated pinbone removal has the potential to increase the sustainability, profits and market for cod and other wild whitefish species. The high precision in locating bones and guiding of bone removal leads to higher yield of raw material. Increased automation of the process results in reduced number of trimming operators needed and improved handling during processing. Thus, the outcome is added value and higher quality of products.

    IFSAT - Integrating Food Safety and Traceability2007Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    This project set out to integrate food safety and traceability by finding common features in the two systems that could benefit each other. Achieved synergetic effects were to be documented by integrating food safety and traceability in the management systems. Systems and standards for chain traceability are now possible to put into operation in the Nordic food industry, with the consequence that a lot of previously unavailable functionality now becomes possible. Chain traceability enables food safety by providing access to data elements that are relevant for risk analysis, relevant for identification of contamination source, and necessary for targeted recall. The challenge in the near future is to integrate food safety aspects and traceability in an operational way.
