News and events at NTNU AMOS in 2019
AMOS days 2019 gathered 115 scientists and researchers to a conference where the latest development within the AMOS research projects were presented. Professor Asgeir Sørensen opened the day by welcoming new PhD candidates and researchers and comparing what we do at AMOS with Elite sports, saying that at AMOS “you will find the best of the best within our fields”.
The Autonomy Cluster in Trondheim is one of Innovation Norway’s new cluster projects. NTNU Amos has been one of the key driving forces behind the cluster, and the Director of Amos, Professor Asgeir Sørensen, thinks the cluster could open a whole new chapter in ocean-based autonomy research.
From 2019, the Department of Marine Technology at NTNU offers students that have a special interests for research a new program that prepares and kick-starts the participant for future PhD studies.
First out is Martin Kvisvik Larsen, a fifth year master student who specializes in marine cybernetics.
NTNU Rector, Anne Borg, and head of REV Ocean, Nina Jensen, have signed a partnership agreement to start a cooperation on marine robotics and use of the new REV Ocean research ship. This opens up great opportunities for NTNU in terms of access to a world-leading ocean exploration vessel, and will provide REV Ocean with access to world-leading research groups at NTNU.
PhD candidate at AMOS, Richard Hann, has received an oustanding oral presentation award from the SAE for their Internationa Icing conference 2019.
The Norwegian Research Council are investing in new research infrastructure projects all over Norway, and two AMOS related projects will now receive funding.
