NORMAN will undertake continuous product development in areas that include: the vehicle, aviation and engineering industries; the food industry; electronics; defence; furniture manufacture; and textiles. Just as important as the products themselves are the manufacturing processes and the value chains that underlie them.
Each project will result in the production of a demo-version or prototype. NORMAN will share premises with SINTEF in Trondheim and will also have its own department in Raufoss Science Park.
