The project aims at discussing measures for improving the Norwegian fisheries resource control system and reduce the extent of illegal activities.
The Research Council of Norway
iFOODnet is a multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial Norway-Japan Training and Research Network.
The primary objective of this project is to map the suitability of different pelagic raw materials for the production of fermented fish sauce.
FHF – Norwegian Seafood Research Fund
In this project, we will find out why cod weighing over 8 kilograms caught using seine nets results in a lot of injuries to the fish and thus reduced quality.
We will contribute to more sustainable food production by developing biotechnological processes, smart sensors and data analytical tools.
The Agricultural and Food Industry Research Funds (FFL/JA)
Do Pacific salmon species carry a secret they could share with Atlantic salmon? What is it in the genes that make these relatives of Atlantic salmon less susceptible to lice? Researchers will now find the answers to these questions, using the gene editing method CRISPR-Cas9.
The Norwegian Seafood Research Fund - FHF
The main aim is to contribute to sustainable food production and innovative value-creation for Norwegian primary producers and food industry.
The main objective of this research program is to contribute to research-driven innovation in the Norwegian food industry in line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals through understanding innovation processes, consumers, and product and process interactions.
"Millennial Salmon" is a strategic partnership among organisations along the value chain of salmon production with the aim to create a knowledge based sustainable product that answers to modern Millennial principles of life, considering technoeconomic, animal welfare, environmental and societal aspects as a whole.
Research Council of Norway - KSPSAMARBEID20 (Collaborative and Knowledge-building Project)
The overall aim of this project is to identify naturally produced compounds that are associated with Atlantic salmon susceptibility and resistance to two parasitic sea lice species and to develop tools that can be applied to boost Atlantic salmon resistance and reduce lice infestation in Norway.
New challenges are constantly emerging related to microbial security and deterioration of food. At the same time, it is important to reduce both food waste and the use of plastic for food packaging.
The project aims to develop and apply antibacterial enzymes ("enzybiotics") for the control of important pathogens in the food chain.
EEA (Norway Grants 2014-2021: bilateral research cooperation Poland – Norway administered by The National Centre for Research and Development, Poland)
The objective is to increase value in the Norwegian agricultural sector by producing bioactive compounds (phytogens) for addition to feed and packaging materials.
Norwegian Research Council
The project will contribute significantly to the development of a new aquaculture industry in the north of Norway as well as contributing valuable knowledge and techniques in genetic breeding, biomass processing and industrial application opportunities that will benefit the industry throughout Norway.
In BIOCOAT we explore the use of sustainable, edible biocoating of probiotic cheese in combination with biodegradable packaging for extended shelf life and enhanced functionality.
EEA Financial Mechanism
DigiFoods centre for research-based innovation (SFI) develops smart sensor solutions for food quality assessment directly in the processing lines, throughout the food value chains. The information can optimize both processes and value chains, and make the food industry more efficient and sustainable.
The project aims to test the effect of live insect larvae as a feed ingredient in the production of slow-growing organic chicken to increase sustainability of poultry meat production, improve animal welfare and meet the consumer demands for healthier, more natural and tasty meat products.
JPI - SusFood2 Core Organic co-fund
In the project, competence transfer to the fruit packinghouses is central in order to be able to utilize and implement the results for optimized packinghouse management and control.
This is a small selection of the more than 600 projects Nofima is involved in at any given time.
