Education saves lives regardless of age, sex, location, and social and demographic backgrounds.
Today, products that utilise rare materials are for the most part manufactured in China. However, the EU has recently decided to boost its raw materials supply security. Researchers and the minerals industry are now looking to Norway.
Urban growth, densification and climate change are putting increasing pressure on our water drainage systems. We now need better systems to manage the increasing number of uncontrolled stormwater events.
Research institutions from Norway and other countries have collected a great amount of data from the northern oceans in recent years. Many people want access to this information.
SINTEF is recommending that parking spaces should be made wider – because passenger cars are getting bigger, and the number of civil actions relating to parking is on the increase.
New research shows that languages make the same spatial distinctions using words like ‘this’ or ‘that’ based on whether they can reach the object they are talking about. That contradicts current thinking.
Seaweeds can be used to improve soils and for the biological capture and storage of carbon. They can serve as feed for livestock and as a food and health supplement for humans. And that’s just for starters. A new research project is aiming to help upgrade current cultivation systems to an industrial scale.
An NTNU professor has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant to investigate how species can survive a changing environment.
The total contribution to wealth creation from the Norwegian marine fishing fleet in 2021 was NOK 32.8 billion, including ripple effects.
The Gunnerus Sustainability Prize for 2021 has been awarded to Professor Jianguo (Jack) Liu at Michigan State University.
Two professors at NTNU have been awarded prestigious ERC Advanced Grants by the European Research Council.
A new partnership between the Centre for the 4th Industrial Revolution Ocean and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has been established to establish trust in ocean data collected from autonomous underwater vehicles.
NTNU and SINTEF will be partners in the newly funded FME NorthWind research centre, which will develop competitive offshore wind farms within ten years.
Emissions from the production of materials like metals, minerals, woods and plastics more than doubled in 1995 – 2015, accounting for almost one-quarter of all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide. Material efficiency needs to play a larger role in climate planning, a new report says.
How do we help the young, especially women, so they are better prepared for learning science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects? A multi-university consortium including NTNU has been awarded a four year, €4.12 million Horizon 2020 grant to help answer this question.
In the classroom, non-educational distractions are only a click or two away. However, a recent SINTEF report demonstrates that these thieves of school pupils’ attention are already being severely weakened.
How can we protect nature and act on climate change? In the wake of heated debate in Norway over windpower development, energy researchers from Norway’s largest university and Scandinavia’s largest independent research institute offer politicians some thoughts.
A new study confirms the role of the aquaculture industry in the spread of resistant salmon lice in Norway.
A sixth of all emissions resulting from the typical diet of an EU citizen can be directly linked to deforestation of tropical forests. Two new studies shed light on this impact, by combining satellite imagery of the rainforest, global land use statistics and data of international trade patterns.
Even Norway, which already heats with green energy sources, could contribute more to shrinking Europe’s CO2 emissions. Building zero emission neighbourhoods would also help lower rising electrical transmission fees.
If carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere and in the ocean continue to rise, this could fuel the mass development of toxic algae, with far-reaching consequences for the pelagic food web, an international team of researchers has found.
Three new fjord laboratories, one in Trondheim, one in Hitra/Frøya and one in Ålesund, along with two test basins in Trondheim are planned as part of the project.
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.
Many moose hunters are looking for the largest and finest bulls. But does this mean that the best genetic material ends up on the dinner table?
