The EU battery research project HYDRA kicks off the development of sustainable, next-generation Li-ion batteries for electric vehicles
The EU Horizon 2020 battery research project HYDRA kicked off on September 16th, 2020. The virtual kick-off meeting brought together 12 leading partners from the European battery industry and research community to develop the next generation of sustainable, low-cost, energy-dense Li-ion batteries for electric vehicle (EV) applications.

We are not inviting you to the usual conversation about the dangers of Ai and the ethical implications. Instead we want to take a closer look at the enormous benefits of Artificial intelligence. It is a fact that technology will lead to a dramatic change in how we think about value creation, change and leadership. This will be a conversation about which smart choices we need to make for Norwegian businesses and industry to become world-leading.
NV GL, TCM and SINTEF join forces in major international carbon capture and storage partnership
Three international organizations specializing in technology research, testing, advisory services, and standardization have joined forces to find new ways to accelerate the adoption of carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS) technology in emissions-heavy industries. DNV GL, SINTEF and Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) have signed a memorandum of understanding to further develop carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies to make full-scale CCS a reality globally.
110 years of engineers who built Norway
We often associate innovation with someone who invents something completely new. But innovation is also about improving and expanding on existing technology. One hundred and ten years of Norwegian engineering history provides plenty of examples.
Simulation model may reduce the climate footprint of oil production
Future offshore oil and gas fields are most likely to be “satellite developments” that are less expensive and emit less greenhouse gases than other fields because they do not require new production platforms. An innovative Norwegian computational tool called "Slug Capturing 2" is now enabling the design of longer pipelines that will allow many more fields to be developed as satellites.
Making ultrasound universally accessible
Currently, ultrasound machines are operated primarily by specialists because it requires extensive experience to interpret the images. Norwegian researchers are aiming to tackle this issue.
Artificial intelligence can make the Oslofjord cleaner at lower cost
Treatment plants ensure that our fjords are not polluted by wastewater effluent. Artificial intelligence (AI) will now facilitate an even more efficient process, and at lower cost.
BATTERY 2030+ – large-scale European initiative for battery research starts up
The European research initiative BATTERY 2030+ is now getting going. The ambition is to make Europe a world leader in the development and production of the batteries of the future. These batteries need to store more energy, have a longer life, and be safer and more environmentally friendly than today’s batteries in order to facilitate the transition to a more climate-neutral society. The project is led by Uppsala University.
The World's First Digital Snow Guide
The bilingual 'Snow Competence' website gathers together all available knowledge on how to ensure good snow conditions in the future, in the most efficient and sustainable way possible. The research-based website is available in Norwegian and English.
