  • Norway’s EV purchasing spree is climate friendly

    If every other passenger car in Norway is plugged into the electric network by 2020, Europe will have to produce more electricity – mainly from coal-fired power plants – to meet the demand. But it will be a plus for the climate nonetheless.
  • Even greener solar power on the way

    Europe wants to reduce its needs for raw materials and raise the level of recycling of resources in the solar power industry. If this project is successful, greenhouse gas emissions from solar panel manufacture will fall by 25 to 30 per cent.
  • Guardrails with inbuilt noise-barriers are on the way

    A combined solution offers better protection against traffic noise – and can also benefit two-wheeled road-users.
  • Smart firms detect their problems in advance

    Sensors, data and analyses all help to give advance warning of critical situations developing on production lines. This can reduce downtime by 50 per cent.
  • Eagle-eyed subsea camera

    A new subsea camera has been developed that can see two to three times further under water than existing cameras and calculate distances to objects. This will make work carried out under water much easier.
  • How are we going to store the problem gas CO2?

    CO2 is the great scapegoat of our age. Is there a way to get rid of it by burying it in the ground or beneath the sea bed?
  • Taking care of old oil wells

    Thousands of old offshore oil wells will have to be plugged to prevent leaks. The process is expensive, but researchers now propose a solution that is much cheaper.
  • Tuberculosis forgotten in fight against HIV

    Tuberculosis seems to have fallen between the cracks in poverty-stricken Malawi’s sponsor-dependent health sector. The dominating focus on HIV may have left parts of Africa with a skewed health service, say researchers.
  • Will our cultural heritage stand up to freak rains?

    Using an old 19th century apartment block in Oslo as a case study, researchers are looking for conservation measures for heritage buildings. How can we make them watertight, insulated and protected against future climate change?
  • Good or bad innovation ideas?

    The traditional way of running a project with a beginning and an end will soon be history. The scientists have a smarter solution.
