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.
SUMMER H2020 Kick-off meeting
SUMMER is an EU H2020 research project with 22 partners from all over Europe. SINTEF Ocean is one of the partners of the project, which is coordinated by AZTI in Spain. The project had its kick-off meeting in Bilboa, Spain, from 24th to 26th of September last year. The kick-off meeting was a partly joint meeting together with MEESO, another EU-H2020 project funded to study the mesopelagic challenges.
Transportation for the 21st Century
What will the future transport system look like? SINTEF will contribute to answering this, through participation in the government-designated strategy process Transport21.
Changing the food processing industry
The iProcess project for a more sustainable food production and to reduce the amount of the climate emissions, the flexible robotic automation technology will enable to increase raw material utilization, reduce food loss and waste, and to cope with biological variation of raw material from fish to wheat.
Seaweed and kelp are more than food
Algae cultivation is popular, but good uses for the raw material are still lacking. Researchers in Norway are set to do something about this, with the goal of fully using this resource.
International Maritime and Port Technology Conference
The first and only international and scientific conference dedicated to autonomous ship technology and applications was held in Busan, Korea, in November 2018. In 2019 it will be held in Trondheim, Norway.
How to make shipping environmentally friendly
We need to cut both global and local emissions from shipping. The picture is complex, but research is showing that there are many ways to meet this goal.
Kick-off for The Norwegian Seaweed Biorefinery Platform
On the 27 May the knowledge platform termed "The Norwegian Seaweed Biorefinery Platform (SBP-N)" had its kick-off at SINTEF Sealab.
