Centres for Research-based Innovation
The Norwegian Reseach Council's Centres for Research Based Innovation initiative aims to build up and strengthen Norwegian research groups that work in close collaboration with partners from innovative industry and innovative public enterprises.
SFI coordinated by UiO
The University of Oslo hosts one Centre for Research Based Innovation (SFI): Centre for Scalable Data Access (SIRIUS). SIRIUS aims at developing novel technologies to significantly improve an ability to extract and exploit information from enormous data ("big data") stores in practice. The centre was established in 2014 and is directed by professor Arild Waaler, UiO.
SFI with participants from UiO
Big Insight was established in 2015, and contributes to competence and capacity building for the knowledge-based economy, towards a better and sustainable society. Fulfilling the promise of the big data revolution, the centre invents analytical tools to extract knowledge from complex data and deliver big insight. Big Insight is directed by professor Arnoldo Frigessi, UiO. The host institution is Norsk Regnesentral.
The Centre for Connected Care (C3) aims to succeed in accelerating adoption and diffusion of patient-centric innovations, i.e. innovations that change patient pathways and delivery systems and increases growth in the healthcare industry. The themes are patient-centric healthcare delivery, innovative infrastructure and interoperability and commercialization, diffusion and adoption. C3 is directed by researcher Kari Kværner, UiO.
CCI aims to develop the next generation of ultrasound systems for cardiology. CCI was established in 2011 and is directed by Professor II Thor Edvardsen, UiO.
Centre for Innovative Ultrasound Solutions for health care, maritime, and oil & gas (CIUS) builds on NTNU’s longstanding tradition in ultrasound (US) research for medical applications and extends this to encompass new research areas within oil, gas and maritime sectors. CIUS was established in 2015 and is directed by Asta Kristine Håberg, NTNU. The host institution is NTNU.
The iCSI basic vision is to establish an integrated competence and technology platform that promotes world class energy efficiency and optimum raw material utilization. The main objective of iCSI is to boost industrial innovation and competitiveness as well as to provide efficient, low-emission process technology. iCSI was established in 2015 and is directed by Hilde Johnsen Venvik, NTNU.
