NORCE works towards finding solutions that benefit the community, and which increase sustainable value creation nationally and globally.
Norwegian authorities have extended the coronavirus measures. NORCE takes this very seriously. We will contribute to help prevent coronavirus infection, and ensure a responsible operation of the company - as well as keeping the workplace as safe as possible for the employees.
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.
