For the first time this week, the Nature Research Group, publishers of Nature, will host an international conference in Trondheim in cooperation with NTNU, SINTEF and the Geological Survey of Norway. The theme for the conference, which runs from 11-13 September, is the sustainable use of minerals and materials.
An entirely new fish farm design, which looks more like an elongated offshore oil platform than a traditional aquaculture facility, may soon be installed in Norwegian waters.
An international team of researchers has recently succeeded in getting several autonomous vessels and underwater vehicles to communicate and work together as part of one and the same operation.
The aquaculture industry typically selects salmon with the right genes for breeding to provide the freshest and biggest fish. A new method has the potential to produce better results.
The filter will first be used to recover aircraft de-icing chemicals. In the future it will also be used in urban areas to remove environmental toxins, pollution and probably microplastics.
In order to maintain the leading position of Norwegian solar cell manufacture on the global stage, we need sensors that can see what humans can’t.
In the innovative EU project GoJelly, researchers are working to solve the microplastic challenge by using products from nature itself.
There are in fact good reasons to care about vortex structures in helimagnets. Our fearless Gemini reporter explains.
When your airport runway is located at 72 degrees south latitude and more than 4000 kilometres from the nearest major city, it better be in tiptop shape. But in Antarctica, where most runways are made of snow or ice, holes can be a big problem.
Norwegian research scientists are contributing to the development of the world’s hottest geothermal well in a non-volcanic area. The goal is to exploit the inexhaustible supply of heat from the interior of the Earth, and this calls for equipment that can withstand the most extreme conditions.
A headset and a little electronics might be all it takes to enable nine-year-old Sharleen, who has hearing difficulties, to get an education and a life free of poverty. She is now getting help from Norwegian researchers.
Companies in a refugee camp in Kenya don’t function the same way they do in Norway. But Norwegian advisors are still in a position to help.
Computer games designed to make us more environmentally conscious need to be both entertaining and educational. Few game designers are good at both. NTNU researchers are creating a model that can bridge the gap between the two.
Plastic trash is a rapidly growing environmental problem. But a biodegradable and natural material could replace plastic packaging and eliminate this problem.
The 1969 discovery of oil at the Ekofisk field in the North Sea transformed Norway into an internationally important energy nation. But long before black gold was being pumped from the Norwegian Continental Shelf, Norway’s economy was fuelled by a different kind of energy: hydropower.
Establishment of the Norwegian Centre for Plankton Technology has yet to be completed, but there has nevertheless been high levels of interest from both industry and research.
Robotics technology is making inroads into the aquaculture sector, making it possible to regulate facilities from onshore.
A new approach to cancer treatment combines ultrasound, bubbles and nanoparticles with chemotherapy. In an experiment, the treatment has cured cancer in mice.
It most resembles a giant snake undulating through the water. But this snake-like robot can work in the vast ocean depths. And perhaps one of its relatives will be able to travel to outer space.
Norwegian entrepreneurs want to replace expensive and polluting mercury lamps. Now they have the financing to do it.
NTNU researchers have found a way to identify people through finger vein recognition. This authentication system shows promise as a more secure passport control method.
