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.
Researchers at NTNU have come up with a remarkably simple method to solve a problem known as probe wandering in a transmission electron microscopy based technique.
ERC grants an international research group EUR 10 million to study how plants cope with drought. NTNU contributes with expertise and advanced equipment.
We should use all parts of whole farmed salmon and keep more of the residuals here in Norway. Researchers say this will help protect the environment while ensuring salmon welfare.
Ever wonder how climate researchers know what they know? 63 Degrees North journeys to 69.5 degrees North to find the answer to that exact question.
NTNU Amos is an expansive ocean research and innovation community that’s composed of both highly honed specialist expertise and an incredibly broad scope of knowledge. It also adheres to a popular Norwegian football strategy: Develop talents by allowing them to do what they do best – and playing to each other’s strengths.
Bacteria in raw seafood can make you sick. Seafood can also spread bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics.
Despite inbreeding and limited genetic diversity, the Svalbard reindeer has managed to adapt to extreme living conditions in record time — what researchers call a genetic paradox. But can they survive climate change?
Researchers at NTNU are searching for materials that could be used to make Li-ion batteries with a higher energy density.
Solid-state batteries may be the perfect solution for electric cars of the future. Researchers in Norway are making these batteries better.
Increased cooperation between Norwegian industry and universities on quantum physics sensors is a win-win situation for society. Such sensors can provide new opportunities in areas as diverse as mineral extraction and agriculture.
The number of lemmings varies greatly from year to year. Other species also have similar fluctuations. Why is it like this, and what happens if lemming years happen less often?
Researchers at NTNU have found a way to make gold nanoparticles with a uniform size and shape, opening up the possibility of finding more effective photocatalysts
Electric cars are a growing market, and so are the large batteries they use. Often these batteries are difficult to recycle. But help is on its way.
Bacteria-free fish fry put researchers on the track of how they could make fish more disease resistant.
An NTNU professor has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant to investigate how species can survive a changing environment.
Imagine sinking your teeth into a tender muffin that tastes good and is chock full of vitamins, antioxidants and other natural ingredients that is also good for your health, too.
“We see no technical obstacles to being able to produce silicon without CO2 emissions within the next two to three years,” says Maria Wallin at NTNU.
By using a cutting edge technique to observe what’s happening at the atomic level inside their material, researchers at NTNU have discovered a surprising new method to make aluminium alloys stronger.
The ability of gold particles to reflect light in different colours is used in applications from stained glass to pregnancy tests. Now researchers are set to exploit the same properties in an ultra-fast sensor for the coronavirus.
Plastic is useful but also poses an environmental problem. Scientists are now using enzymes from bacteria and fungi to break down plastic.
Lena van Giesen, an associate professor at NTNU’s Department of Biology, was awarded EUR 1.7 million by the European Research Council (ERC) to study larval development of the coral Lophelia pertusa as well as its environment.
