The fish farming industry can be one of the most important sources of value creation in Norway’s future. "The long-term view that steers knowledge development can give Norwegian fish farming the same important role that oil has had," says Harald Sveier, Senior Reseacher in EWOS Innovation.
Senior Researcher Harald Sveier of EWS Innovation has recently, together with 30-some other industry actors, worked out a scenario for Norwegian fish farming. The work takes place in the fish farming program’s scenario project "Fish Farming 2020". He thinks it is positive that the Research Council of Norway carries through the development of future knowledge strategies for fish farming and that they involve those who work in the business. The industry itself has a responsibility to stimulate the greater long-term view, and to contribute to a sensible work split between science and industry development, feels Sveier.
In the thirty years that fish farming has existed in Norway, the industry has been characterised by a high rate of change and increased competency and knowledge development.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
