ACRoBEAR – high-latitude risk of wildfire and disease

The ACRoBEAR (Arctic Community Resilience to Boreal Environmental Change: Assessing Risks from fire and disease) project will quantify changing risk of boreal forest fire and natural-focal disease for local communities in high northern latitudes under changing environmental and climatic conditions.

RECEIPT

RECEIPT (REmote Climate Effects and their Impact on European sustainability, Policy and Trade) will map potential impacts and risks of climate extremes outside Europe on European socio-economic sectors.

Flexeffect -Flexible electricity use in households: barriers, opportunities and effects

The project will meet the urgent need for social science research on flexible electricity policy and technology in Norway.

Exhaustion

Air pollution is currently the largest environmental killer in Europe, causing 500,000 premature deaths annually. Heatwaves can make air pollution more lethal and cause more heart and lung diseases. Together with Universitetet i Oslo (UiO) the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and 11 other European institutions CICERO will help increase European resilience towards climate change.
