SINTEF supports AI-driven design in EU's most ambitious battery research project
EU invests €20 million to accelerate the development of the next generation of high performance and sustainable batteries.
New research and innovation center to provide climate-friendly value creation on the Norwegian continental shelf
The Board of the Research Council of Norway decided on June 11 to grant SFI Swipa (Subsurface Well Integrity, Plugging and Abandonment) status as Center for Research-Driven Innovation for the next eight years.
Getting the body to make its own cancer drugs
Imagine that we could instruct our bodies to make the drugs they need themselves. The gene technology that makes this possible is called mRNA therapy, which may become a major tool in the treatment of multiple diseases. Norwegian researchers are currently helping to develop a drug of this kind to treat the most aggressive form of breast cancer.
New fast-track software tool for emissions-free transport
New software now being developed as part of an EU-funded project will ease the roll-out of hydrogen-powered haulage vehicles, ships and trains when a “new Europe” starts to take shape once the Covid-19 crisis is behind us.
Ceramic 3D printing for fast, safe and cheaper production of vaccines
The NESSIE research project makes it possible for the first time to produce highly complex vaccines in large quantities at low cost using ceramic 3D printing. The novel process makes vaccines available to countries that previously could not afford the high cost of essential vaccines such as measles or rubella.
Inventing the Sustainable Batteries of the Future
The European large-scale research initiative BATTERY 2030+ presents the long-term research roadmap that outlines the actions needed to invent the sustainable batteries of the future.
A revolution in vaccine development – but will we all benefit?
By manipulating the “instruction manuals” that control cell function in our bodies, we will soon be able to combat many diseases, including the new coronavirus outbreak. However, in the worst scenario, such innovations will only benefit the rich.
This hydrogen lorry is powered by sunshine – from the north
Hauliers Asko in Norway, are among the first in the world to operate a goods vehicle that runs on hydrogen made from solar power – thanks to a collaborative effort by research scientists and other players.
How much microplastic is there in your laundry basket?
Every time you wash clothes, you are releasing microplastics into the sea, but we know little about the amount and distribution of such material from different types of textile. Research scientists are now working on measuring and capturing microplastics in our laundry.
