NORCE works towards finding solutions that benefit the community, and which increase sustainable value creation nationally and globally.
Offshore Wind is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy sources in Europe. NORCE covers important research areas needed to succeed in developing Offshore Wind as a societal accepted, cost-efficient, and environmentally friendly energy source for the future.
NORCE's main office is in Bergen, and the group has a strong presence in Tromsø, Haugesund, Stavanger, Kristiansand, Grimstad and Oslo, Norway.
We deliver research and innovation in energy, health care, climate, the environment, society and technology.
A NORCE-led research team has investigated microplastics release from possible sources within seafood production. Microplastics were present in seawater, fish feed, farmed fish and wild fish.
To meet the need for better processing and analyzing of marine big data, the researcher’s interdisciplinary framework must be rapidly improved, climate researcher Jerry Tjiputra at NORCE says.
Invisible microplastics are everywhere - in the air you breathe, the water you drink and in the food you eat. Microplastics are a growing problem, but still we do not know much about the environmental levels (amounts) and the consequences of exposure. This is to be researched by NORCE's newly established microplastics centre.
