NTNU activities, research groups and labs
- ARTEC is formed by a heterogeneous group of researchers and artists working at different fields and departments at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology such as the department of Electronics and Telecommunications, Engineering Design and Materials, Computer and Information Science, Music, Theatre, Literature and Fine Arts.
- Adressaparken was established when Adresseavisen moved into new facilities at Verftstomta. The technological infrastructure of the park is a joint cooperation project between Adresseavisen, Trondheim municipality, and NTNU. The park is a laboratory for researchers and students at NTNU. The new outdoor space in the technology capital of Trondheim will be a vibrant laboratory for research and innovation, testing of new solutions, social debate and communication of knowledge related to art and technology.
- The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory. Since its foundation the scope of interest has grown to cover colour science, colour imaging, image processing, and video processing in a broader sense, and our vision is to be one of the best research groups in this field. To achieve this vision the group employs a number of researchers with a broad competence basis in fields such as graphic arts, colour imaging science, media technology, computer science, signal processing, physics, image processing, video processing. We also maintain an interactive open environment with strong national and international collaborators both in academia and industry. This has resulted in a wide range of fundamental and applied research projects which the group is actively involved in. Further, the group has a large number of well-equipped laboratories and conference facilities.
- Media Acts research group explores what media do rather than what media are. Contributing to emerging approaches within media studies that investigate media agency beyond media determinism, we consider mediated forms of expressions in terms of the productive changes they introduce into the mediated situation
- Enlightenment News is a research project which springs from the mass digitization of newspapers and periodical publications from the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The project explores how this archival development is changing our thinking about the history of news, and it interrogates how access to a huge archive of material – in a machine-readable format – is producing original knowledge and innovative practices within literary, cultural and media history.
- The Research Group in Digital Linguistics is a cluster of projects situated at the intersection of digital technologies and humanities. Its aim is to produce models and applications that allow for an integration of new technologies and research in the humanities, for the study of society, culture and language. Work in the Digital Humanities is by nature collaborative, and the Digital Linguistics group has strong partners both in the computational and in the linguistic milieus.
- In the Language Acquisition and Language Processing Lab we investigate language skills in children and adults. The Lab is primarily dedicated to basic research. We do experimental research on language acquisition (first language acquisition with children and second language acquisition with adults) as well as on language processing (for instance comprehension and categorisation). Our goal is to find out how humans develop their abilities to understand and reflect on the world around them and to talk about it. Closely related is the question what young children know about the world around them. How do they think? How do they learn to talk?
