Results from the ROBÆR Project in Western Norway

Results from the ROBÆR Project in Western Norway

February 8

The project “Robust and sustainable communities; ROBÆR” is led by Stavanger Municipality in cooperation with the municipalities of Bergen, Randaberg, Sola and Sandnes. ExxonMobil, Bergknapp (green roof supplier) and The Skjæveland Group are sponsors contributing significant resources to the project. The project is led by Arne Sæbø of The Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research (NIBIO). The goal of the project is to develop blue-green solutions as tools for comprehensive and sustainable stormwater treatment in both the present and future climate conditions of Western Norway.

SGRA board member Tobias Emilsson is commissioned by the project to give expert inputs.

The ROBÆR project held a seminar September 16th, 2016 presenting project themes and results. Presentations from the seminar can be downloaded from the NIBIO net site here.

A status report from the project can be downloaded in English or Norwegian.

"Fifth Dimension" recieves the Green Year award!

January 26

The Finnish Association of Landscape Industries, Viherympäristöliitto ry (VYL) rewarded the Fifth Dimension research programme with the award of the Green Year. The reason for this acknowledgement is that the researchers of the group, led by Dr. Susanna Lehvävirta, have produced new knowledge on vegetation, fertilisation, economy and social aspects of green roofs. The research of the group generates information that can be rapidly and efficiently applied in practice.
