GOMPLAR - Governance of Marine Litter in the Arctic
The main objective of GOMPLAR is to describe, compare and analyze two regional international regulatory and governance frameworks addressing marine plastic litter in order to draw conclusions for possible solutions in the Arctic, seeking synergies and interplay mechanisms between a possible circumpolar arrangement and the two regional ones.
Compareit addresses how new production systems should be regulated, administered, and where they could be best located, which are highly relevant questions for a sustainable development of the industry that safeguards other societal interests and competing claims to space.

Future Design of Subsea High Voltage AC Power Cables for Offshore Renewables
Nexans Norway, together with research partners, aim to develop the next generation lead-free power cables. In the FutureCaRe project, we will perform testing and develop modelling tools to secure high reliability and long lifetime of lead-free “wet design” high voltage AC subsea cables. High Voltage wet design cables will support the development of renewable floating energy sources such as offshore wind, offshore solar power, wind-hydrogen, and wave power technologies.
POLYKELP - Seaweed as feed source for protein-rich polychaetes aimed for salmon feed
The use of renewable marine bioresources to make feed ingredients for fish feed is still in its infancy. In POLYKELP, we will study seaweed and brush worms aimed for use as salmon feed.
Sustainable tuna fisheries through advanced earth observation technologies
Sustainable tuna fisheries through advanced earth observation technologies (SusTunTech) aims to improve fisheries sustainability. The project will enhance the fishing industry profit as well as contributing to fisheries sustainability.
COPREST – Value Creation from Rest Raw Materials from Intensive Copepod Production
The scarcity of marine proteins and lipids is considered to be the greatest challenge needing to be addressed in order for the aquaculture sector to continue to grow in a sustainable manner. In COPREST, CFEED and SINTEF Ocean will explore the possibility of utilising copepods as a feed ingredient.
OMB6 - Optimizing marine battery operations
Optimizing marine battery operations using 6 years’ operational data from two commercially operating vessels.
NordSalt will assess the nature, diversity, extent and long-term changes of Nordic coastal marsh habitats, to evaluate their role in climate regulation and to assess their vulnerability and change in ecological structure and functions under future climate warming scenarios, local environmental pressures and management decisions.
