Centres for Research-based Innovation
The SFI scheme promotes innovation by supporting long-term research through close cooperation between R&D intensive companies and prominent research institutions.
NTNU hosts six Centres for Research-based Innovation:
- Metal Production – MetalPro
- Centre for Advanced Structural Analysis – CASA (with the SIMLab research group)
- Center for innovative ultrasound solutions for health care, maritime, and oil & gas industries – CIUS
- Subsea production and processing – SUBPRO
- Industrial Catalysis Science and Innovation for a competitive and sustainable process industry – iCSi
- Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology – SAMCoT
As from 2015 NTNU also participates in these new centres
