Norway's position as an energy-exporting country is changing due to decarbonization of the European energy market. To fulfil the Paris Agreement, CO2 emissions must be reduced in all parts of the energy value chain from generation to end-use. There is a surge to replace fossil-fuelled energy generation with carbon-free alternatives and renewable generation, and a need to ramp up deployment of CO2 capture and storage (CCS). This ongoing transition of the energy system creates both opportunities and challenges for the utilization of Norway's fossil energy and renewable electric power resources.
Mucoprotect – A novel generic system for targeted delivery of oral vaccines
Vaccines are by far the most important tool in preventing disease in Norwegian aquaculture. Without the systematic use of efficient vaccines industrialisied fish farming would be an impossibility. Despite this, 53 million salmon were lost in Norway in 2017 due to illness and injury, also related to salmon lice treatment. In the project we will develop novel, clever vaccines based on nanoparticles, tailored for oral vaccination.
SIP GUT: Development of tools for gut microbiota research
The gut microbiota are the microorganisms that live in the gastrointestinal tract. They play a fundamental role in health and disease of the host. Detailed understanding of gut microbiota–host interactions is therefore of great importance as this may be used to find new treatments to various diseases and increase the well-being of humans and animals.
TrippelTarg - Triple Targeting of Biodegradable Nanoparticles for Treatment of Cancer
SINTEF want to further develop a targeted treatment strategy that has shown promising effects in animals with patient-derived tumors. The strategy is based on the use of nanoparticles developed by SINTEF containing a cytostatic drug.
Batmobile - Multi-scale modelling platform
BATMOBILE is a multi-scale modelling platform to support theory-based design of new batteries in both industry and research.
Battery 2030+ - BATTERY 2030+ large-scale research initiative: At the heart of a connected green society
BATTERY 2030+ is the large-scale and long-term European research initiative with the vision to invent the sustainable batteries of the future and enable Europe to reach the goals envisaged in the European Green Deal.
Hydra - Hybrid power-energy electrodes for next generation litium-ion batteries
Hydra will hybridize high-power and high-energy electrode materials to create sustainable Li-ion battery cells with excellent energy density.
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.
SNAP - Seaweeds for Novel Applications and Products
The future bio economy is reliant on increased utilization of marine resources to meet increasing needs for food, feed, materials andproducts. Seaweed is an underutilized biomass in Europe with a great potential for value creation and industry development. The SNAPproject is innovation-focused and aims to develop novel products by upgrading and modifying five different polysaccharides from selected brown and red algae.
