EECS intro

EECS logo

Energy efficiency is the key design challenge for future computing systems, ranging from wireless embedded client devices to high-performance computing centers. 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 focus on improving the energy efficiency of computing systems across all abstraction layers — spanning disciplines such as nanoscale electronics & materials, computer architecture, system software, and applications.

EECS is also acting as an EU Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) with the goal of providing knowledge on energy efficient computing for the Norwegian industry.

Partners – EECS


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.
