The results from NTNU’s call on interdisciplinary research collaboration in sustainability is now available, and we are very happy to report that IGP is involved in 2 of the 9 projects that were funded!
Professor Hanumantha Rao Kota has been involved in the project Developing a Holistic Ecosystem for Sustainable Repurposing and/or Recycling of Lithium-ion Batteries (LIBs) in Norway and EU. (HolE-LIB) coordinated from the NV-faculty.
Associate Professor Steinar Løve Ellefmo has had key involvement in the project The Deep Dilemmas: Deep Sea Mining for the new Deep Transition? (TripleDeep). The latter project is coordinated by the HF-faculty and is based on a previous RCN-application that has been developed by the same project group and led by Ellefmo.
Rao and Ellefmo will receive 1 PhD candidate each.
For IGP to be involved in 2 of the 9 projects here is very positive for our department. NTNU received 60 applications from all faculties at NTNU within the deadline.

Congratulations to Rao and Steinar!
