Lifesaving sensor for full bladders

A small pressure sensor can make the difference between life and death. The first tests on humans will be carried out in April on patients with spinal injuries at Sunnaas Hospital in Norway.

Carbon capture and storage essential to reach climate target

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is essential if the EU’s climate target is to be reached in a cost effective way. Extensive governmental support in the form of subsidies is necessary to support early implementation of this technology.

Silicon carbide puzzle solved

No one has ever been able to process silicon carbide in such a way that it can be thermally sprayed as a lightweight, extremely durable coating on machine parts. That was before Fahmi Mubarok began his doctoral research.

Norwegian IT researchers are the best in the world

International IT researchers have limited contact with the industry, and tend to stay in their offices, working on concepts and studies. Norwegian researchers work closely with companies – and win awards

Crash course

As the Arctic Ocean’s summer ice cap melts away, new trans-Arctic shipping routes will open and see a growing amount of shipping traffic. But what’s the best way to protect ships and other ocean structures if they crash into icebergs?
