The invisible technology

Nanoproducts have slipped into our lives, almost without being noticed. Man-made particles end up in the air, soil and water. What happens to them?

Robot kids

Their brains are still no more advanced than that of a one-year-old, but scientists want robots to be as smart as teenagers – at least.

Super bed sheet

A specially modified, millimetre-thick, super-absorbent bed sheet solves delivery-room problems.

Kelp in the tank

Jorunn Skjermo is doing her best to ensure that cars can be powered by green fuel from the sea.

Putting a price on green

The most environmentally friendly product in the building materials store could soon be the cheapest too.

An eye for detail

The X-ray detectors of the future are on the way. New technology makes it possible to sort plastics, identify useful minerals in waste and reveal contamination in food and medicines.

Drugs from the sea

For the first time, Norwegian scientists have managed to produce completely new antibiotics from bacteria found in the sea.

Golden carbon

This powder has the colour of our cold northern nights. But it is hot news for everyone who wants to extract more electricity from sunshine.

Moving underground

Scientists from Trondheim are helping Singapore to move its infrastructure underground.

Smart materials

Today’s materials are not like they were before. We now give them properties to safeguard against rust, repel graffiti and store or emit heat.

Good news for pigs

Embedding sperm cells in a gel for artificial insemination increases the fertilization period for cattle and pigs and means more offspring.

Superconductors for industry

The world’s first induction heater with superconductors is based on a Trondheim invention. This technology can bring large savings to the aluminium industry.

Stolen identity

No matter how you try, it’s impossible to protect your identity online. Researchers have found a major gaping security hole.

The robot that climbs pipe walls

A robot that can move forward and inspect complicated pipe systems is currently under development. The robot can twist its way vertically up pipe walls.

Set in concrete

HARALD JUSTNES BURNS FOR THE CHINESE ENVIRONMENT – LITERALLY.

The new face of the sea

We have reached the limits of the sea’s ability to sustain fisheries. We have to change our aquaculture practises.

A sensor is born

Advanced sensors are produced in SINTEF’s MiNalab. This image shows […]
