The Earth’s oceans are crisscrossed with roughly 1.2 million km of fibre optic telecommunication cables — enough to girdle the planet 30 times. Researchers have now succeeded in using fibre in a submarine cable as a passive listening system, enabling them to listen to and monitor whales.
As part of a six-year research project, researchers have succeeded in developing a membrane that captures CO2 in an entirely innovative way. Their work has resulted in an article published in the prestigious research periodical Science Magazine.
Detecting colon cancer early is the key to survival and quality of life. Researchers at NTNU are working to make it easy for people to check their intestines from home.
With this seaplane you will be able to take off from Trondheim Fjord or Flesland Airport in Bergen, Norway, and land in the Geiranger Fjord one hour later.
Is it possible to identify signs of depression by analysing the content young people post online and in chat rooms? The answer is yes!
For the first time, heroin overdose nasal sprays have been tested on more than 200 real acute patients.
How the unlikely combination of WWII Germany, a modest English engineer who created a worker’s paradise, an ambitious industrialist prosecuted as a traitor and a hardworking PhD helped build modern Norway, one aluminium ingot at a time.
An airplane with significant ice build-up on its wings or propellers will sooner or later crash. Researchers at NTNU have come up with several findings that could enable drones to de-ice their wings automatically.
Researchers in Norway are among those at the forefront in the field of nanoelectronics. Their goal is to create electronic components at the atomic level, which would open vast possibilities for electronic gadgets.
Countless potentially useful enzymes are hidden all around us. NTNU researchers have developed a new method that could help us find them.
Goats are smart animals. A new technology takes advantage of their intelligence — so they longer need physical fences. More than 2400 Norwegian farmers are already using the technology to herd their animals.
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and SINTEF have travelled to the UN climate change conference, COP26, with three strong recommendations on how the North Sea can power the green energy transition.
These research scientists are studying Nature’s own nanomaterials – applying tools and methods that are normally used for something quite different. Their work has provided us with knowledge that may revolutionise everything from medical treatments to building constructions.
Team Cerberus has won an international competition with their subterranean robots, competing against top-ranked challengers. The group is headed by an NTNU professor.
Only very few companies succeed consistently in developing new ideas. But those that do have one factor in common. The boss doesn’t interfere.
Lybe Scientific, a start-up company based on NTNU research, is entering the market as a provider of high-quality diagnostic solutions – not just for COVID-19 diagnostics, but also other areas such as the common flu and sexually transmitted diseases.
Researchers at NTNU have developed a new elastomer with unprecedented stiffness and toughness, inspired by spider silk.
Relatively simple adaptation could make the cargo ships of the future completely green. The technology is based on the chemical compound ammonia, some extensive number crunching and one or two engine modifications.
A new app under development is using deep learning and artificial intelligence to classify different kinds of sea ice. People snapping photos during Arctic cruises and uploading them to the new app could someday help prevent Titanic -scale disasters.
Young entrepreneurs are testing out drone transport of medical samples between two hospitals 100 kilometres apart.
Ghost fishing and plastic waste from the fisheries industry is becoming a major environmental problem. Can we address the issue by using degradable plastics? Scientists at a new research centre are aiming to find the answers and develop the systems we need.
Intelligent food handling by robots can boost productivity and reduce waste in the production chain. Meet the robot with visual and tactile sensing, capable of handling compliant food objects.
Movies of micromagnets created by researchers at NTNU could further our understanding of materials for the next generation of computers.
Two professors at NTNU have been awarded prestigious ERC Advanced Grants by the European Research Council.
