PlastiSea - Novel enhanced bioplastics from sustainable processing of seaweed
The main objective of PlastiSea is to develop novel bioplastic materials based on cultivated and wild species of brown algae.
Virtual-FCS - VIRTUAL & physical platform for Fuel Cell System development
The main aim of the VIRTUAL-FCS project is to make the design process of hybrid fuel cell and battery systems easier, cheaper and quicker.
GO2DEVICE – Novel (M,Ga)2O3 thin films for two-dimensional electron gas devices
The aim of the GO2DEVICE project is to develop a new transistor for use in the power electronics sector, which has the potential to become faster, smaller and operate at higher power than existing options. Power electronics (PE) play an important role in the collection, delivery and storage of energy, and is a key enabler for energy efficiency, renewable energy and smart grids. Silicon-based PE components have been optimized to the point where further improvements start to be limited by the materials properties themselves, and in order to meet the needs predicted for a sustainable society, new materials are targeted. Among the newest candidates is gallium oxide (Ga2O3), which is a wide bandgap semiconductor with an ultra-high breakdown field.
CHANNEL - Development of the most Cost-efficient Hydrogen production unit based on ANioN exchange membrane ELectrolysis
the objective of the CHANNEL EU project is to develop a low cost and efficient electrolyser stack and balance of plant (BoP) that will become a game-changer for the electrolyser industry.
SAM Self Adapting Model-based system for Process Autonomy
The primary objective of SAM is to optimize demanding industrial processes by developing advanced physical models and machine learning algorithms, and integrating new online sensors where real time data is currently limited or lacking.
HyLINE - Safe Pipelines for Hydrogen Transport
Hydrogen, the most abundant chemical substance in the universe, may, as an energy carrier hold the key to the inevitable and needed transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Together with Norway's important role as a major energy provider in Europe comes the obligation to be a main player in this transition.
AEMON - Novel Failure Monitoring System for Marine Applications by including Acoustic Emission
Gear systems are critical in maritime vessels and wind turbines, and damage of components in these systems may lead to catastrophic and costly failure. Today, gears and bearings are often monitored by frequent inspections and manual condition monitoring. However, closed gears are not easily inspected, and in autonomous and remote-controlled vessels and subsea installations, remote condition monitoring is the only option over long periods of time.
DIY4U – Design & production of personalised powdered & liquid FMCG
DIY4U focuses on digitalizing and transforming European industries and services involved in the formulation, production and supply of particulate and liquid based Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG), enhancing the innovation capacity and competitiveness through decentralized customer-centric production approaches, by promoting the adoption of Open Innovation (OI) digital platform for collaborative production engineering and Fablabs (digitally enabled small-scale manufacturing machines/factories).
Norwegian P&A Laboratories
The Norwegian P&A Laboratories project will set up a full-range lab facilities for safe and cost-efficient plugging and abandonment of wells. The institutions SINTEF (project owner), NORCE, NTNU and UiS, together organised as Norwegian P&A Laboratories, will design and install the enhanced facilities over the period 2020-2023.
