Strategic Area of Research

Medical Technology

The strategic research area of Medical Technology ended its operation at the end of 2013. A new and broader thematic priority programme within health, welfare and technology is now being established at NTNU, and medical technology will remain an important part of NTNU's new strategic programme and the activity will continue.

Medical Technology (also known as medical engineering) was established as a strategic research area in 1999 to create opportunities for developing unique forms of multidisciplinary collaboration between research communities in medical engineering at NTNU, SINTEF and St. Olavs Hospital.

The aim has been to develop new technological methods, materials and equipment for use in medical prevention initiatives as well as in diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation, and increased understanding of societal aspects of medical technology.

Medical technology has involved multidisciplinary collaboration between health professionals, biologists, technologists, and social scientists. The main activities of the network groups have been whitin:
