Centres of Excellence
The Research Council of Norway provides long-term funding for Centres of Excellence (CoE), with the goal to bring more Norwegian researchers and research groups to a high international standard.
The vision behind the Centre for Biodiversity Dynamics is to develop an interdisciplinary centre for research into changes in time and space of biological diversity at different organismal levels.
CEMIR identifies new therapeutic targets and develop new diagnostic tools for inflammatory diseases through an integrated 10-year programme of research and research training in molecular innate immune responses.
The scientific goal of CNC is to advance our understanding of neural circuits and systems and their role in generating psychological functions. By focusing on spatial representation and memory, we expect to uncover general principles of neural network computation in the mammalian cortex.
NTNU AMOS develops intelligent ships and ocean structures, autonomous unmanned vehicles (under water, on the surface and in air) and robots for high-precision and safety-critical operations in extreme environments.
The centre works to develop methods for calculatin complex fluid flow in porous media. Its approach combines methods from physics, chemistry, geology and geophysics to create knowledge that can be used to efficiently extract oil or cleance water in drought-strikes areas. CoE PoreLab is shared between NTNU and University of Oslo (UiO).
QuSpin aims to create a revolution in low power communication technology for an energy-efficient society. New theories of spin and quasi spin states of materials will be combined with experimental investigations to develop approaches to signal transmission without any loss of energy.
University of Bergen (UiB) hosts the Centre.
Simula Research Laboratory hosts the Centre.
UiO hosts the Centre.
