Climate Futures is all about getting researchers and industry partners to work together to find good solutions. In this video, made by SFI-partner Clarify, Erik Kolstad (NORCE) and Tore Norheim Hagtun (Clarify) explains how collaboration between academia and industry can be mutually beneficial.
– It is interesting for us as researchers to take one question from one partner and apply it to another partner and then see the synergies that develop between the partners, says Erik Kolstad, leader of the SFI.
Climate Futures is in fact one of the SFIs with the most partners. CEO at Clarify, Tore Norheim Hagtun considers this a strength that brings many interesting discussions to the table:
– Although the partners come from different industries, such as agriculture, aquaculture, shipping and energy production, they are all affected by changes to the climate and the environment.
Eide Fjordbruk has created the Salmon Eye to be a centre for learning and discussing sustainable fish farming. Recently Climate Futures’ partners Clarify, Eide Fjordbruk AS, Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC), Institute of Marine Research (IMR), Norway, and NORCE Norwegian Research Centre met at this extraordinary venue in September to plan new research activities to enhance the value of climate prediction for aquaculture and fisheries.
