Ultrasound technology from NTNU makes it possible to monitor cerebral blood flow in newborn babies, helping prevent brain damage in premature and sick infants who require surgery.
The Nyhavna industrial area in Trondheim, which is being developed into a new mixed-use neighbourhood, has seen significant maritime technology research and innovation. NTNU Nyhavna for autonomous vessels is now officially opened.
Norway is often seen as a shining example of how a country can make its transportation greener by encouraging consumers to purchase electric cars. But Norway’s approach isn’t for everyone — and it may be hampering the country’s efforts to make its transport solutions truly climate friendly.
Nineteenth-century Norwegian technology helped bring large whale populations to the brink of extinction. Can 21st-century technology help save them?
The need for cyber security expertise is steadily increasing. This summer’s cyber attacks against 12 Norwegian ministries and the Storting were a stark reminder of this. According to an NTNU researcher, hacking in organized forms is the solution.
Researchers at NTNU are searching for materials that could be used to make Li-ion batteries with a higher energy density.
Apps and games make us exercise more often, play more, run further, learn better and work smarter. Meet the innovators who make you do the things you should be doing but that you maybe don’t want to.
Unless we acquire greater knowledge about what happens at the atomic and molecular scale during materials recycling, progress towards a truly circular economy will grind to a halt.
Norwegian researchers are currently developing wind turbines that can adapt their blade rotation speeds to prevent bird strikes.
Researchers have developed a new method of detecting a metabolic disease that affects dairy cows after calving. The aim is to determine whether cows are at risk of contracting the disease before they actually become sick.
SINTEF researcher Marcell Szabo-Meszaros is the man behind the international study ‘Hydropower and Fish – a Roadmap for Best Practice Management’, which offers guidelines on fish population protection in rivers to companies carrying out hydropower developments.
In recent years, 3D printing has exploded in popularity, and may open a new era of faster and more climate-friendly manufacturing. But is it really the manufacturing method of the future?
Solid-state batteries may be the perfect solution for electric cars of the future. Researchers in Norway are making these batteries better.
Using a completely new piling joint, geothermal heat can be extracted directly via the piles used to anchor buildings in the ground. The invention makes it easier, quicker, cheaper and safer to use environmentally friendly energy.
Data-driven public administration changes the public sector in a fundamental way. But what does this mean for you as a citizen?
If anything goes wrong with your heart, it is critical to get the right treatment quickly. Artificial intelligence can help with just this – and more lives can be saved.
Women’s health continues to be given low priority. But a new video provides important information on how to strengthen the pelvic floor after childbirth.
The actions that vehicle drivers perform today will be handed over to machines – just as soon as the technology makes it possible and road users demand that such systems be put in place. This is no simple task, but Norway is far ahead of the curve.
The Norwegian government has proposed opening an area of the continental shelf to deep sea mining. NTNU researchers have worked for more than a decade on this issue. They say we have much to learn before Norway can decide if this can become a viable industry.
The use of stem cells now makes it possible for us to cultivate so-called organoids, such as tiny versions of a liver, heart or small intestine, in the lab. These micro-organs can then be connected to a microchip that simulates the body’s biological processes. This ‘organ-on-a-chip’ technology opens the door to previously undreamt-of research possibilities.
Online abuse of children has increased considerably in recent years. Technological advances and inadequate legal regulation are driving this development, according to a new Norwegian report.
Some people are very anxious. Others are enthusiastic. But how intelligent is AI, really?
Densely-packed housing makes urban areas vulnerable to overheating, pollution and dangerous wind gusts. The effects of climate change can aggravate these problems, but we can also work to prevent them. This can be done by simulating microclimates.
The last dent in your car, two tragic aviation accidents, and the blow out at the Deepwater Horizon platform may all have had the same underlying cause.
