A game-based test that detects hearing loss in children has recently been awarded a European innovation medal. Both the test and the technology behind it have been developed by Norwegian researchers.
Countries arise, change and disappear. An ERC Grant of €2 million will illustrate how old states affect conflicts and democracy today.
Shorebirds burn a lot of fat during their long migrations. This can release toxic chemicals that accumulate in fat cells.
The capture and storage of CO2, also known as CCS, from our waste is essential because this refuse is responsible for a large proportion or our cities’ greenhouse gas emissions. Moreover, the technology represents a relatively inexpensive abatement cost.
Is your home office in the living room, or is your whole family working at home? Here’s some good advice to make sure your indoor climate is healthy.
Production of electricity is responsible for about a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, and demand is poised to rise as underserved populations connect to the grid, and electronics and electric vehicles proliferate. So stopping global warming will require a transformation of electricity production. But it is important to avoid various environmental pitfalls in this transition, researchers say.
Researchers measured the stress hormone cortisol in 112 toddlers from 85 different childcare centres in six municipalities, approximately five months after they started attending. Children with the longest childcare days (8-9 hours) showed an increase in cortisol during the day.
Online weight loss forums protect participants from public fat shaming, and offer them a place to speak out without being confronted by normal-weight individuals, medical science or the authorities.
Man-made refrigeration gases threaten the Earth’s climate. The use of natural compounds like CO2 is an effective counter-measure.
Espionage, sabotage and blackmailing threaten commercial enterprises as well as governmental agencies when all computer systems are interconnected. Countering this is complex and challenging, but possible.
What actually is NOx, and is this gas a climate-change sinner? And where does ozone come into the picture? SINTEF- scientist Mario Ditaranto, an expert on combustion, provides all the answers on flue gases.
Researchers may have found the smallest life forms on Earth. The bacteria they found are much smaller than scientists thought possible.
The Norwegian research community is now permanently represented in Brussels. The goal is to increase the number of international research projects and to find new research partners.
The British-born Pauline Braathen has given US $5 million to establish a new centre at the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at NTNU. The Kavli Foundation has matched this donation with NOK 50 million so that the new centre will receive a NOK 100 million grant.
NTNU has signed an agreement with CERN to create a Business Incubation Centre (BIC) at NTNU to commercialize CERN technology.
Scientists regularly use computer models to understand complex problems, from predicting the weather to designing boats and automobiles. Now they are also using this approach to better understand the human body — including the causes behind high blood pressure.
