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.
Working from home does not make us less productive
Current research into teamwork is showing that we do not become less productive working from home, provided that we work intelligently and are equipped with tools that enable us to work together with our colleagues. In this article, researchers will be advising us not only on what works, but also on what isn’t so smart.
Robo-turtles in fish farms reduce fish stress
Robotic turtles used for surveillance could help prevent escapes from salmon farms. The “turtle robots” are paving the way for a technology that improves monitoring inside sea cages.
Cracking the code to sea cucumber farming
Sea cucumbers are internationally known as a superfood, as they contain many healthy substances. They are highly sought after by both Chinese restaurants and health food manufacturers. However, many sea cucumber species are threatened with extinction, so researchers want to farm them commercially – on land.
Promising prospects for CO2 storage on the Norwegian continental shelf: “A huge opportunity to decarbonize industry”
– Today the Norwegian Ministry of Energy and Petroleum announced that the indicative results from the drilling at the Northern Lights project are positive and that the respective area on the Norwegian Continental Shelf could be suitable for CO2 storage.
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.
Preparing ourselves for extreme events
As wildfires raged through the Swedish forests in 2018, a new set of European resilience management guidelines for dealing with crises was demonstrating its potential usefulness to decision-makers. Applying these recommendations can save many lives and protect major infrastructure assets during cross-sectoral accidents and crises.
Your sewage is valuable muck
A world without phosphorous is a world without life. But phosphorous is a finite resource, so researchers are recovering it from sewage.
SINTEF makes important contributions to autonomous maritime transport
The 21st of January marked the start of the four-year project AUTOSHIP. This self-propelled vessel research project is supported by EU's Horizon 2020 research programme. The project has a frame of more than 20 million euros, which is one of the largest allocations given to Norwegian players ever.
