    Foreign takeovers in the Nordic countries (FOTON)2005Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Like domestic owned multinational companies, foreign owned multinational companies represent equally positive opportunities for Nordic trade and industry, both in terms of innovative capabilities and value creation. There are no apparent reasons for leading a different policy towards companies with foreign ownership. The governments in the Nordic countries should encourage initiatives that attract this type of companies. Foreign owned multinationals take part in international networks that might benefit other firms in the national innovation system.

    ScanBalt Clinical Research Network2006Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    There is a growing demand for highly specific clinical trials. The Nordic-Baltic countries and regions are too small on their own to be able to supply large enough trial groups. Through cooperation the Nordic-Baltic region can position itself on the clinical research testing map to the benefit for researchers, entrepreneurs and society as a whole. The idea of the project is to take advantage of the existing knowledge and experience of the universities, hospitals and companies in the Nordic and Baltic areas to create a dynamic and comprehensive platform for high quality pre-clinical and clinical research. ScanBalt Clinical Research Network is envisaged to link flexibly pre-clinical animal study centres and clinical facilities in the 21st century ICT infrastructure in the Baltic Sea area.

    ENZYCOAT - Oxygen scavenging and aroma affecting enzymes embedded in barrier coatings2010Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The possibility to use enzymes as oxygen scavengers embedded in latex/ TiO2 dispersion coatings was demonstrated in a series of experiment where different grades of paperboard were coated. Simple draw-down coatings were used as application method. The enzyme system consisted of glucose oxidase in combination with an enzyme that removes peroxides (peroxidase/catalase). Glucose or glucose derivatives were used as substrates for the enzymatic reaction. The enzyme-containing coatings seemed to persist drying at elevated temperatures for limited period of times. The period of time with no dramatic decrease in enzyme activity was substantial shorter than drying times in real industrial coating and printing processes (on condition that the web will be cooled down before reeling up). The coatings could also be stored in air at room temperature for long period of times without any loss in enzyme activity.

    Innovative Fish Counters2012Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The main purpose with the project ”innovative fish counters” was to create a common Nordic industry standard, create a new set of rules for the Nordic Championship in Fish and Shellfish and create new and innovative ideas/tools to make life as a fishmonger in the Nordic countries better, by ideas that could motivate a greater consumption of seafood in the Nordic region.

    The result of the project is therefore an industry standard that in relation to various topics (ex. temperature inrelation to displaying of fish) is clearly national differentiated. The purpose is of course in the long run to getan industry standard where everything is the same in all the Nordic countries, but before that can happen,the politicians in the different Nordic countries needs to interpret the EU regulations in the same way.In the short time this project has been running we have come a long way with the industry standard, and it isready for the fishmongers to use in their everyday work.

    Abstract [en]

    Regions, nations and companies that are capable of changing and adapting to new circumstances will over time have the best chances of sustaining a healthy balance between growth and prosperity within their societies. It is by no means given from nature that the Nordic countries should be among the richest societies in the world. But the Nordic countries have, especially since the breakthrough of the industrial and modern age, shown themselves capable of steady development and renewal. Co-operation between industry, government, academia and civil society has been one of the defining characteristics for the Nordic countries’ development in this achievement. Nordic co-operation is in this sense a natural ingredient to the Nordic way of development.

    Strongholds and Qualities of the Nordic Health Tech Ecosystem2018Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    An analysis of positions of strengths of Nordic health tech companies.

    This report assembles a knowledge base for the Nordic Welfare Solutions project, and gives an overview of the core qualities and strongholds of the Nordic health tech ecosystem, concentrating exclusively on health tech solutions outside of the pharmaceutical industry.

    Health tech solutions are increasingly part of larger health solution value chains or ecosystems, and companies delivering them are therefore likely to benefit from closer cooperation across industries and countries. Closer Nordic cooperation can help create stronger networks and a critical mass of companies, as well as improve market access and aid Nordic companies inexporting their solutions.

    The findings suggest that the Nordic healthcare systems consistently deliver high quality healthcare to their citizens. The region possesses a healthcare infrastructure with leading knowledge and institutions, which is essential for developing abusiness stronghold. Moreover, it finds that the Nordic region excels at delivering equitable care to all citizens, relative to comparable regions. This feature, in combination with indicators revealing a high level of trust toward public institutions aswell as between citizens, is likely to be important for the development, piloting and homemarket commercialization of treatments within personalized medicine.

    Creating new concepts, products and services with user driven innovation2010Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    User driven innovation is emerging as one of the successful ways of creating breakthrough innovations for companies and organisations. Based on our research we have been able to identify four generic methods of working with user driven innovation: user test, user exploration, user innovation and user participation. Even though these methods might vary slightly from one company to the other, they have some basic features which are common. When working with users, companies might chose to include the users either directly or indirectly in the innovation process, depending on what type of knowledge the company wants to obtain from the user. Users’ ability to communicate and express their problems and needs varies greatly and will also influence the user driven innovation method chosen by a company.

    Nordic scalers - A study of drivers of growth and barriers to scaling of Nordic companies2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The Nordic region has the potential to become one of the leading scale-up hubs in the world. Drawing on internationally comparable data, this report shows that in all the Nordics the number of scale-ups per capita is well above the EU average.Indeed the scale-up density for the Nordic region is almost on par with the UK and Switzerland – two renowned scale-up nations. Finland, Sweden and Iceland rank especially high.But the analysis also documents a significant gap between the Nordics and two scale-up champions: the US and Israel.Thus, on average Nordic countries have 5 scale-ups per 100,000 inhabitants, while in the US this figure is close to 8, and in Israel it is 12.If the Nordic region is to narrow the gap between it and the US and Israel it is vital that founders of1. Executive Summary scale-ups, investors and policymakers in all of the Nordic countries have comprehensive knowledge and insights on the key challenges and barriers that Nordic scale-ups face at different stages of growth.Even more importantly, all of the key actors will need to understand how successful scale-ups manage to meet and overcome key barriers for growth.Based on more than 50 interviews with CEOs and founders of Nordic scale-ups, and representatives from the investor side, this report provides new and detailed insights into common traits and challenges among Nordic scale-ups.

    Today the cost of feed is 50-60% of the total production of farmed cod. A 10% reduction in feed cost will therefore give a minimum of 5% reduction in production cost. The biggest single variable cost in cod farming, the high cost of feed, is the main obstacle in making cod farming economically feasible.

    Nordic Technology Transfer Network for Regional Innovation2008Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Technology Transfer (TT) is on the rise in Europe with an increased focus on cooperation between public research and the business community, as it enables good ideas and inventions to be transformed into products and services for the benefit of society. This project has sought to create the first Nordic Technology Transfer Network, enabling technology transfer professionals from all sectors to engage in the exchange of knowledge through the implementation of an e-based knowledge-exchange platform. The creation of this pan-Nordic TT-network was approached by a series of five regional workshops, with attendance from the local business communities and public research institutions. The network has all along been moderated by a project steering group with representatives from the five Nordic countries. The network’s e-tool was further developed and customized during the project lifetime, allowing Nordic TT professionals to seek and exchange knowledge on a global level, to accommodate the Nordic technology transfer sector’s expressed need for an international dimension.

    Nordic Sustainable Healthcare2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Climate change is one of the greatest environmental challenges facing societies today and action must be taken in a wide range of sectors – healthcare being no exception. WHO estimates that around 5% to 15% of the carbon emissions in developed countries derives from healthcare services.

    It is therefore of great importance that this sector is targeted if we are going to reach the UN sustainable goals which have been set. The Nordic countries are worldl eading in creating a sustainable healthcare. By adapting the operations, setting sustainability criteria when procuring devices and by controlling outputs from hospitals, the environmental impact is kept to a minimum.

    In this white paper you will find five main focus areas connected to how the Nordic region work with sustainable healthcare.

    The white paper is made as part of the Nordic Welfare Solutions project run by Nordic Innovation. The project is one of six flagship projects under the Nordic prime ministers' Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges initiative and is coordinated by the Nordic Council of Ministers.

    Wood components in steel and concrete buildings2004Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    The study shows that if this pattern could be spread to the rest of Europe (and to other parts of the world) there is a considerable potential for increased use of timber in the construction sector, both in the in-fill panels themselves and in spin-off developments for other wood based building components. Examples of such components are partitions, cladding and joinery.

    Nordic Ambient Assisted Living: Welfare technologies for active and independent living at home2019Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
    Abstract [en]

    Nordic Welfare Solutions is one of six flagship projects under the Nordic Prime Ministers' joint initiative, Nordic Solutions to Global Challenges, coordinated by the Nordic Council of Ministers. Nordic Welfare Solutions is managed by Nordic Innovation and has the goal of increasing exports through Nordic cooperation, branding and storytelling. The aim is to create a critical mass, strengthen Nordic networks and improve market access for Nordic companies.

    This white paper introduces a selection of Nordic solutions for Ambient Assisted Living. These are technologies and welfare services developed in the Nordic Region, which enable the elderly to lead an independent life in their own home for a longer duration.

    It is one of three white papers derived from an analysis of the Strongholds of the Nordic Health Tech Ecosystem, published by Nordic Innovation in 2018. This white paper is based on input from more than 70 interviewees working within health and care provision, research and technology development in the Nordic Region.
