Strategic Research Area 2012–2016

Energy Efficient Computing Systems (EECS)

Illustration with mobile technology.

Energy efficiency is the key design challenge for future computing systems, ranging from wireless embedded client devices to high performance computing centres. The Energy Efficient Computing Systems (EECS) research initiative was established in 2012 to respond to the challenges met in the current socio-economic context. 

The EECS Group's primary research efforts will focus on improving the energy efficiency of computing systems across all abstraction layers - spanning disciplines such as nano-scale electronics, computer architecture and system software and applications.

EECS's research activity is organised around research projects.

Ongoing Projects

EECS is one of seven groups at NTNU which gets special support for work with applications to EU's Horizon 2020 research program. In this context Professor Per Gunnar Kjeldsberg is project leader working together with Associate Professor Magnus Jahre who acts as process leader.


EECS collaborates with both leading companies and universities, at the national and international level.

How does EECS interact with industry partners? Typically the company contributes to the research or teaching activities of EECS researchers. In other cases, the partnership can translate into a joint application for external funding opportunities.

How does EECS interact with research partners? Usually a research partner co-authors a paper  with an EECS researcher or may contribute to a research funding proposal.

Strategic Research Area

EECS is a joint initiative by the Department of Electronics and Telecommunications and the Department of Computer and Information Science

This strategic research area is hosted by the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering.
