NORCE contributes with expertise in IT and acoustics

NORCE is an independent research institute with around 750 employees that undertakes research for both the public and the private sector. NORCE has a long tradition for cooperation with IMR, UiB and KM within the topic of SFI CRIMAC, due to a strong competence within acoustics and data science. 

NORCE has been a key contributor for the development and implementation of acoustic methods in postprocessing systems, and the effect of nonlinear loss in fisheries acoustics. Together with IMR, NORCE has developed the software LSSS which is used by several hundred researchers for better to monitor and analyse fish resources. NORCE will contribute to broadband spectrum modelling, develop methods/use machine learning for broadband noise removal and automatic categorization of backscatter. They will also be involved in training and education of researchers and PhD students.
