BioMim - Advancing biomass technology

Utilization of woody (lignocellulosic) biomass has emerged as a top priority to meet growing energy demands, address climate change, and support forest economies. Research and technology development are critically needed to find cost-effective and sustainable solutions for the conversion of biomass. Extensive exploitation of lignocellulosic biomass as a feedstock for a variety of products is the key to develop a viable bio-economy. However, the natural resistance of lignocellulosic biomass to chemical and biological deconstruction is a challenge that biorefineries have to overcome.

Animal Sensor Networks


Bruken av trådløse sensorer for å samle inn informasjon fra dyr har blitt stadig viktigere. Dette gjelder bruksområder som omfavner alt fra praktisk landbruk, dyreforskning og det er brukt i turisme-sammenheng mm. Formålet med dette prosjektet var å gjennomføre anvendt forskning innen fagområdet sensornettverk for dyr og etablere et kompetansenettverk innen Botnia/Atlantica-området (Norge, Sverige og Finland) for denne type forskning.
