Not everyone with diabetes knows they have the disease. A survey of close to 53 000 participants found that far more people are being discovered with diabetes than was previously thought.
Bike-sharing is a way for cities to cut their greenhouse gas emissions while limiting urban congestion. But bikes have to be available when and where people want them. A new approach can help by ensuring bikes are in the right place at the right time.
The number of abuse cases against children via the internet has increased by almost 50 per cent in five years, according to the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. Researchers at NTNU in Gjøvik have developed algorithms that can help detect planned online grooming by analysing conversations.
Many countries have introduced market competition and privatization in their health care systems in recent years. But the most satisfied patients can be found in countries where a large part of the system is handled by the public sector.
How animals and plants adapt to the environment is often particularly evident on islands. Now Darwin’s giant daisies are helping researchers understand a little more about how these plants actually go about adapting.
Some children resort to food as a comfort or eat more for other reasons. But the link between predicted obesity-promoting eating behaviour and high BMI may not be what you think.
Combining ultrasound and bubbles helps medicines pass through the protective blood-brain barrier and is giving hope for improved treatment of several diseases.
Girls do not lose body fat from being more physically active. Nor is how round they are connected to how active they are. But researchers have found these links for boys.
NTNU biology and cybernetics researchers have built a robot that allows them to sample everything from microplastic to salmon lice densities.
Researchers are creating molecules that can slow down the development of osteoporosis, cancer and inflammation. Foreign investors are interested.
Researchers at NINA, the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, and NTNU have developed a new method for monitoring salmon lice larvae along the coast. The lice trap is now being tested in the Hardangerfjord.
Show us your heat pump, and we’ll tell you if you’re using it right. Researchers provide advice that can save you both energy and money.
Chemists behave like detectives as they examine sludge from sewage systems. They hope to contribute to better sludge recycling by identifying the contaminants and toxic substances it contains.
In the age of smartphones and social media, the number of adolescents and young adults in Norway with depression and anxiety has doubled. Researchers believe politicians and technology giants need to take more responsibility.
When hydroelectric power plants suddenly switch off the water, we risk killing fish fry and other living organisms in rivers. The regulations need to change, say scientists and anglers.
NTNU researchers from AMOS, the Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems, used small satellites and subsea robots — and everything in between — to study marine life in Svalbard’s Kongsfjorden in a first-ever experiment in May.
Heating with oil in homes and commercial buildings is now banned in Norway. The storage tanks are supposed to be removed from buildings, but many people choose not to get rid of these environmental time bombs.
Did you ever want to get really good at something when you were younger? Over the years, you tend to lose some of the spark and the belief in yourself that you’ll succeed. But – there’s hope.
Twice as many women as men suffer from headaches. Migraines are the leading cause of disability for people under the age of 50.
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.
High-temperature heat pumps are no longer simply for idealists. They’re contributing to more than just climate accounting, and industrial companies are standing in line to learn more.
An animal’s ability to adapt to its environment is clearly key to its survival, but does that ability come at a physiological cost? A clever experiment with laboratory zebrafish and their wild relatives suggests it does.
Drug dealers have tricked shipping cargo tracking systems to think drugs are “bananas” and unknown actors have jammed GPS signals in northern Norwegian waters. Fixing these problems requires understanding how seafarers themselves perceive cyber risks — so they can do a better job protecting themselves and their vessels.
