Projects

The Nansen Center is a project oriented international research centre focusing on the basic research within marine environment and ocean forecasting, satellite remote sensing and climate studies and modelling. Our research is funded by projects granted through competitive calls by research councils, space agencies, EU, national and international government agencies, industry and private donations.

Some of our on-going research projects are listed below. The list is being populated with the most recent and on-going projects and later updated with other major completed research projects.

Ongoing Projects

TOPVOYS

  • The project aims to implement analyses tools and decision support system for voyage optimization and to find the “best route” for a ship based on the marine weather forecasts, ship characteristics and cargo requirements.

RISES

Blue-Action

  • Climate Dynamics and Prediction

    Blue-Action is a 5-year European project of Horizon 2020 Blue Growth coordinated by the Danish Meteorological Institute with 41 partners. Prof. Y. Gao is a key partner and is leading work package 3.

CONNECTED

INTAROS

  • Climate Dynamics and Prediction, Polar Acoustics and Oceanography, Scientific Data Management

    INTAROS is a research and innovation action under the H2020-BG-09 call in 2016 and will run from 2016 to 2021.

ARCPATH

NorDataNet

  • Scientific Data Management

    Safe stewardship, preservation and unified access to heterogeneous scientific datasets in the environmental domain.
