Researchers at NTNU’s Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience have found specialized brain cells that help us navigate in space.
A sixth of all emissions resulting from the typical diet of an EU citizen can be directly linked to deforestation of tropical forests. Two new studies shed light on this impact, by combining satellite imagery of the rainforest, global land use statistics and data of international trade patterns.
A Swedish-Norwegian research project will be looking into the possibilities and costs of transporting CO2 captured in Sweden for storage on the Norwegian shelf. This is the first project ever to look into this possibility.
Comedian Stephen Fry is coming. So is the man who created the drone show that Metallica takes on tour, and a cyborg artist who had an antenna surgically implanted in the back of his head so he can hear colours.
The themes of the tenth edition of the Trondheim CCS Conference are technology that is absolutely necessary to combat climate change: CO2 capture, transport and storage.
Better and cheaper offshore wind farms are the goal for a new cooperative effort on renewable energy.
If carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere and in the ocean continue to rise, this could fuel the mass development of toxic algae, with far-reaching consequences for the pelagic food web, an international team of researchers has found.
Three new fjord laboratories, one in Trondheim, one in Hitra/Frøya and one in Ålesund, along with two test basins in Trondheim are planned as part of the project.
Listen to headliners such as Edward Snowden, Ben Goldacre and the musician Sting. Festival passes go on sale from Friday 7 December.
New technology will be used to recycle rare and valuable metals from waste materials such as electronic scrap and foundry slag. The process is profitable and may help to reduce environmentally harmful mining operations. The method is now in the final for the EU-research prize “Best early stage innovation 2018.”
The team behind a new medical navigation system which makes it easier to take biopsy samples from the lungs recently received an international innovation award during Innovation Expo 2018 in Rotterdam.
Electric cars are good for the environment – but not for people who cannot see. They have problems detecting the silent vehicles. However, Norwegian research scientists are working on a solution.
SINTEF and NTNU are working closely together in Brussels. The rewards for Norwegian businesses can be great, both in terms of innovation and revenues.
Exosomes are natural nanoscopic particles released by most cell types, and are currently the focus of research because they represent a possible tool for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s. These particles are not so easy to isolate, and nanotechnology may help in this process.
How is the travel pattern of a family affected by the delivery of foods to the door? And does this make them more environmentally friendly? Researchers will now find the answer.
A new EU project will provide greener cities through cheaper and simpler solar cell systems.
In the innovative EU project GoJelly, researchers are working to solve the microplastic challenge by using products from nature itself.
Fuel cells used for hydrogen cars are expensive to use because they contain large quantities of the precious metal, platinum.
According to a new research report, most plastic fragments end up on the ocean floor.
The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was the recipient of the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize. In view of inflammatory statements by Donald Trump about the size of his “nuclear button”, an NTNU political expert says the message the Nobel Committee tried to send is more important than ever.
Companies in a refugee camp in Kenya don’t function the same way they do in Norway. But Norwegian advisors are still in a position to help.
Producing biogas can be a chemistry nightmare. NTNU researchers are helping improve the process.
Hydrogen fuel cells can store and supply electricity, but are still developing as a technology. NTNU researchers are helping advance this approach to making the transition to environmentally friendly energy.
This is confirmed by the international journal Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology.
