It took two students just two months to figure out how to control a drone using brainwaves.
There are six breeds of dogs that are illegal in Norway. According to dog training expert Ane Møller Gabrielsen, this ban is not supported by the science.
Some children are more aggressive than others when they have bad experiences. But they are also calmer when life is good.
Norwegian school children may have learned that Norway was once a superpower. But was Norway really an empire?
“Dynamic positioning” has been hailed as “the jewel in the crown” and Norway’s greatest engineering feat since World War II. But what is it?
“July 22 affected individuals and Norwegian society in a way we have not experienced since World War II,” writes Tor Einar Fagerland.
Some children gain weight faster than others. Eating habits seem to have far more to say than physical activity.
With the help of new 3-D technology, you can dive underwater and swim with farmed salmon.
Two thousand years ago, Norway produced iron in significant quantities. Much of it was exported both southward and northward from Trøndelag in central Norway.
Switching to more durable asphalt could save significant amounts of money on some Norwegian roads — possibly as much as NOK several hundred million a year
If testing goes well, an invention that helps save fuel in ships may soon be in production, with the support of the British industry.
Imagine that everything in your mind had been erased, and you had to learn everything all over again. What would that process be like?
NTNU is the first Norwegian partner involved in Climate-KIC, the EU’s main climate innovation initiative.
Where peat moss takes over in a northern lawn, it strangles almost all of its grassy neighbours. Nevertheless, there are good reasons to take care of peat moss.
See a Viking’s grave or travel to the ocean floor. New technology allows archaeologists to easily map excavation sites in 3D.
Space elevators, more effective solar cells, super-fast computers. All of these technologies are dependent on new information about the characteristics of nanoparticles. Researchers in Norway are giving us this insight.
This gouge may be the result of a successful parry, says archaeologist Ingrid Ystgaard, referring to the deep notch in the shield’s protective metal boss.
Earlier this year, students and employees at NTNU’s Nanolab cut a 100-nanometre thick platinum wire. That’s a thickness of just one ten-thousandth of a millimetre.
Computer games can help improve instruction. Pupils learn more. Teachers get a better overview of what and how well their students are learning.
Substantial revenues from natural resources bring opportunities, but also problems, in developing countries. A new research project will look at best practices in resource management.
The health of people all over the world is dependent on a slew of different variables, so interdisciplinary work is vital to professionals in global health. Twenty-two European countries, the USA and South Africa are all taking part in a comprehensive Norwegian global health survey.
Mortality among childbearing mothers is still high in many countries. Simple methods can save both mother and child.
People from NTNU travel around the world to do research. Photograph Per Harald Olsen has documented a number of these trips. He also has some advice for photographers who would like to take pictures like his.
Norway needs its own climate laws, but these laws will only be effective if they are good. Bad climate policies may be worse than none at all, according to NTNU researchers and policy makers.
How would you feel about robots taking over elder care? It may seem odd to you, but most Japanese wouldn’t even think twice about robots caring for their grandparents.
Making sausages is not just a question of good ingredients and skill. There’s a little science involved, too. Professor Trygve Magne Eikevik makes his own sausages, and is willing to share his technique and his recipes, especially for Norwegian Christmas sausage.
2014 NOBEL PRIZE: Animal welfare is important for Nobel laureates May-Britt and Edvard Moser. Not just because that is how it should be, but also because the researchers get the best results that way.
It’s been this way for 127 years— the V-shaped wake pattern behind a ship moving in a straight line always has the same central angle. But a Norwegian armed with a pen and a piece of paper has discovered that in certain situations, a boat’s wake can actually be found in front of the boat.
NTNU researchers have made a discovery that can be key to the development of faster computers that use less energy.
Could human tissue samples be dried for storage, instead of being frozen? Researchers are looking at the salt cod industry for a potential tissue sample drying technology that could save money without sacrificing tissue quality.
