Whitepaper on Industrial Heat Pump
Industrial processes are currently responsible for 20 % of total greenhouse gas emissions in Europe. In order to stay within the 1.5°C scenario of the Paris Climate Agreement, measures to reduce these greenhouse gas emissions from industry are urgently needed.
Two Leading Research Papers Share NCCS Award
The Scientific Committee of the Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) recently announced joint winners of the Best NCCS Paper award for 2019. The award aims to highlight world-leading research in carbon capture, transport and storage technologies from the NCCS research centre.
- These are fields in which Norway can lead the way
The Norwegian Centre for Research-Based Artificial Intelligence Innovation (CRAI) opens the way for widespread collaboration between industry and academia – an essential premise for the development of effective solutions.
Searching for the secret to more efficient solar cells
The search for the perfect solar cell is not yet over. Norwegian researchers are now adopting a new approach to the cells’ raw material, crystalline silicon, with the aim of making the electricity-generating cells even more efficient.
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.
We want to be a driver for the transformation of Norway
“This is a major and important boost for Norway. The SFI centres aim to create the business and industry of the future. NTNU and SINTEF want to be a driver for the major transformation that the nation is facing,” say NTNU’s Rector Anne Borg and Alexandra Bech Gjørv, President and CEO of SINTEF.
Sound beacons support safer tunnel evacuation
Research conducted as part of the project EvacSound demonstrates that auditory guidance using sound beacons is an effective aid during the evacuation of smoke-filled road tunnels. This is good news. It is a fact that vehicle drivers and passengers cannot normally expect to be rescued by the emergency services during such accidents.
Interrupted breathing during sleep – a widespread disease with no cure
Every fifth Norwegian suffers from the widespread disease obstructive sleep apnea. Several treatment options exist, among them surgery, however results are unpredictable and of variable quality and differ from individual to individual. What determines if the treatment is successful or not? Our scientific research using mathematical airflow models may help the medical doctors to find the answer.
