Cross European cooperation projects coordinated by researchers from the MN faculty

Several of the special programmes in The Seventh Framework Programme(FP7) announce funds for small and large scale cooperation projects within research and researcher mobility. The coordinator has the main responsibility to carry through the project and is the connecting link between the EU commision and the project partners.

EFFIcient and robust fuel cell with novel ceramic PROton conducting electrolyte

EFFIcient and robust fuel cell with novel ceramic PROton conducting electrolyte (EFFIPRO) is a collaborative project under the special program cooperation (Energy). The goal of the project is to develop stable and robust electrolytes and electrodes for proton conducting fuel cells. The project aims towards having proton conducting ceramic fuel cells available by 2020 and to develop  a dominating fuel cell technology.

The project leader of EFFIPRO is professor Truls Norby.
Project duration: 2009.05.01 - 2012.04.30

 

MAterials for High Energy Accumulators in Traction and Tools

MAterials for High Energy Accumulators in Traction and Tools (MAHEATT) is a collaborative project under the special program cooperation (Energy/NMP). The project aims to take Li-ion batteries to the next level of performance. MAHEATT shall develop prototypes for the next generation of Li-ion batteries with a special focus on automotive applications (hybrid vehicles and electric traction) and handheld devices.

The project leader of MAHEATT is professor Helmer Fjellvåg.
Project duration: 2009.04.01 - 2012.03.31

 

Metastatic Tumours Facilitated by Hypoxic Tumour Micro-environment

Metastatic Tumours Facilitated by Hypoxic Tumour Micro-environment (METOXIA) is a collaborative project within cancer research under the special program cooperation (Health). The objective of the METOXIA project aims at increasing the knowledge concerning the metastatic process in the hypoxic micro-environment at the molecular level in order to develop novel strategies for improved biomarkers for diagnosis as well as improved chemo- and radiotherapy.

The project leader of METOXIA is Professor Erik O. Pettersen.
Project period: 2009.02.01 - 2014.01.31

 

Multi-disciplinary University Traditional Health Initiative (MUTHI): Building Sustainable Research Capacity on Plants for Better Public Health in Africa

Multi-disciplinary University Traditional Health Initiative: Building Sustainable Research Capacity on Plants for Better Public Health in Africa (MUTHI) is a coordination and support action project under the special program cooperation (Health). The overall objective of the project is to create sustainable research capacity and research networks between the participants in Africa, collaborating neighbouring institutions, and the European project participants to obtain improved health in Africa. The primary object of research is traditional medicine.

The project leader of MUTHI is professor Berit Smestad Paulsen.
Project duration: 2011.01.01 - 2014.12.31

 

Interests and Recruitment in Science

Interests and Recruitment in Science (IRIS) is a collaborative project under the special program capacities (Science in Society). The main objective is to address the challenge that few young people (women in particular) choose an education and career in science, technology and mathematics (STM). The project will examine factors influencing recruitment, retention and gender equality in science, technology and matehmatics in higher education. The Norwegian part of the project is a cooperation betwwen the Department of Physics and the National Centre for Natural Sciences in Education.

The project leader of IRIS is dr. Ellen Karoline Henriksen.
Project period: 2009.05.01 – 2012.04.30
