HINDCON is an EU-funded project, studying 3D-printing of concrete in the construction sector. SINTEF’s role in the project is to research how the new 3D-printing construction will affect the construction process, in terms of lean manufacturing but also how the new processes affect the construction workers.
Learning Flexibility: Complexity, Innovation & Inter-Urban Knowledge Transfer
Learning Flexibility: Complexity, Innovation & Inter-Urban Knowledge Transfer focusses on flexible and sustainable cities by identifying novel lessons and knowledge from cities facing complexity, crisis or limited resources.
LORCENIS – Long Lasting Reinforced Concrete for Energy Infrastructure under Severe Operating Conditions
The main goal of the LORCENIS project is to develop long lasting reinforced concrete for energy infrastructures under extreme operating conditions.
Cooperative ITS for Mobility in European Cities
CIMEC is a city-focused project which will explore the role cooperative ITS systems (C-ITS) can play to support city authorities, both in managing their transport networks and the delivery of other transport-linked services. It will reach out to key stakeholder groups (both public and private) to ensure a smooth and cost-effective deployment of C-ITS in cities around Europe. The project commenced in June 2015 and will run until May 2017.
RICAS 2020 – Design Study for Advanced Adiabatic Compressed Air Energy Storage (AA-CAES)
The goal of RICAS2020 is to provide an innovative design concept of an Underground Research Infrastructure to develop technologies by which the storage of very high amounts of “green” energy will be possible.
Liq-IR: Low-cost FT-IR for Online Analysis of Liquid
Breaking the price barrier for applying FT-IR spectroscopy to industrial liquid processes
Development of Smart Thermal Grids
Approximately half of buildings energy demand is related to heating and cooling. District heating is an important technology in improving the energy efficiency of heating systems in cities and districts, because it enables waste heat sources to be utilised economically and therefore significantly reduces the environmental impacts of energy production.
