Relevant projects (ongoing and finalized)

EU-HEU “Partnership for the Assessment of Risk from Chemicals (PARC)“. NIVA is part of the PARC project along with approximately 200 other institutions from Europe. The PARC project, funded by the EC (Contract 101057014) aims to develop next-generation chemical risk assessment to protect human health and the environment. It supports the European Union's Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability and the European Green Deal's “Zero pollution” ambition with new data, knowledge, methods and tools, expertise and networks.

Technical and Scientific Support Organisation (TSO) for the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority (DSA). NIVA is part of a multiorganizational cluster funded through the NMBU Knowledge Centre that aim to transition key competence from the former CoE CERAD into a TSO. The TSO main aim is to support regulatory functions of the Norwegian Radiation and Nuclear Authority (DSA) and The International Atomic Energy (IAEA) towards radiation protection. This work involve, but is not limited to R&D that expand knowledgebase, develop and implement tools and services related to radiation measurement, modeling, hazard assessment, risk assessment and societal considerations (more info).   

In silico and experimental screening platform for characterizing environmental impact of industry development in the Arctic (EXPECT) is a 4-years project funded by the Research Council of Norway. Led by NIVA and in collaboration with Akvaplan-niva, SINTEF, University of Clemson (Clemson, US) and University of Newcastle (Newcastle, UK), EXPECT will pioneer the development of a Source To Outcome Pathway (STOP) to characterize the causal source-exposure-effect-impact relationships for pollutants and their mixtures in the Arctic environment.

EU H2020 project “Towards effective radiation protection based on improved scientific evidence and social considerations - focus on radon and NORM (RadoNorm)”. The 5 year RadoNorm project (2020-2025) is funded by the EU radiation protection research programme (EURATOM, contract 900009) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN, contract 313072), and will support good management and handling of radon and other naturally occurring radioactive materials (NORM). 

Centre for Rescue of Earth Materials and Waste in the Circular Economy (EarthresQue), a Research Council of Norway funded Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI). EarthresQue aims at becoming a national and internationally leading research cluster for material research, technological development, system innovation and governance framework for sustainable handling and treatment of waste and earth materials.
