PANTERA (PAN European Technology Energy Research Approach) is a EU H2020 project aimed at setting up a European forum composed of Research & Innovation stakeholders active in the fields of smart grids, storage and local energy systems, including policy makers, standardisation bodies and experts, representing the EU energy system.
In-No-Plastic: Innovative approaches towards prevention, removal and reuse of marine plastic litter
In-No-Plastic’s goal is to develop and demonstrate nano-, micro, and macro-plastic clean-up technologies in the aquatic ecosystems.
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.
BIG-MAP: Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform
Batteries play an important role in our daily lives, powering smart phones, computers, and cars. As the world races to reduce CO2 emissions, the development of sustainable and high-performance batteries takes on an even more important role enabling the large-scale storage of renewable energy, electric shipping, and even electric aviation. The BIG-MAP (Battery Interface Genome – Materials Acceleration Platform) project will accelerate the speed of battery development by fundamentally changing the way we invent batteries.
