Concrete can tolerate much more force that previously believed, which could open the door to a new kind of road structure: a floating tunnel.
How do we protect astronauts in space from breathing dangerous gases? A German-Norwegian hi-tech optical gas sensor provides a solution.
Norwegian researchers are investigating how a snake robot might carry out maintenance work on the International Space Station (ISS), study comets, and explore the possibility of living and working in lava tunnels on the Moon.
Heavy-duty trucks will soon be driving around in Trondheim, Norway, fuelled by hydrogen created with solar power, and emitting only pure water vapour as “exhaust”. Not only will hydrogen technology revolutionize road transport, it will also enable ships and trains to run emission-free.
State-of-the-art solar cells are efficient – but are even more so when they are kept clean. A cleaning robot developed by Norwegian researchers enables solar panels to deliver at full capacity.
Many of the speakers at the Starmus Festival are superstars in their fields of expertise. But few have as many fans as Brian Cox, the researcher who also feels at home in popular culture.
Facebook is an important source of not only genuine, but also fake news. But now a new tool has been developed to expose the fakers.
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
Researchers from Norway and Singapore are working together to build cities floating at sea and underground universities.
Japanese researchers have access to the largest scientific vessel ever constructed, one that has a 120 metre tall derrick capable of drilling to 7500 metres below the seafloor. They’re using it to hunt for life deep under the seafloor and explore for mineral deposits at the bottom of the ocean — topics that are of great interest to Norwegian researchers.
How can ships travelling in the Arctic maintain their position when ice pushes them in different directions?
Researchers rely on super microscopes to develop more efficient next-generation batteries.
Researchers at NTNU are developing a robot that will be controlled by living brain cells.
Syrian refugee children often do not learn to read in their native Arabic. But two new games are set to change that.
Storing compressed air in sealed tunnels and mines could be a way of storing energy in the future – if an EU project in which Norway is a partner is successful.
Recording and storing millions of fingerprints is a high-risk operation. Scientists are constantly searching for new and better security solutions to protect your information.
This July, Team Sky rider Chris Froome will try for his fourth victory in the Tour de France. The aerodynamic clothing he’ll likely wear during time trials is being developed at NTNU.
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.
The 11 March 2011 Tohoku-Oki earthquake was the largest and most destructive in the history of Japan. Japanese researchers — and Norwegian partners — are hard at work trying to understand just what made it so devastating.
An international team of researchers has concluded that operational funding should continue to be provided for the production of renewable energy in Europe, provided that such support is progressively reduced over time.
You might think that polar bears— and the potential for attack— are the biggest danger on the Norwegian island archipelago of Svalbard. But avalanches kill far more people on Svalbard than polar bears ever have.
Marie Moe, who is a SINTEF researcher in cybersecurity, discovered that her heart is being regulated by a pacemaker which can be hacked.
A wireless network of sensors aimed at preventing explosions in mines is an innovation of worldwide significance that is being developed by a Norwegian-African cooperative project.
