This is a summary of current and newly established
projects. Most of these projects will ultimately have their own
websites. These websites include a project description and a summary
of the partners involved and will allow you to access project reports
and other results.
- Models for European Networked University for eLearning. The MENU
project is part of the EU's eLearning Initiative. This project gives
us the opportunity to develop more Internet courses in English,
participate in more student exchange programs and expand our R&D
efforts in the field of eLearning. From 2001 - 2003. Project management:
Stord/Haugesund University College.
Project support: TISIP.
Q-FREE I CHINA.This is
a NORAD project. TISIP, along with AITeL, is responsible for developing
a Information and Communications Technology (ICT) program at the
Bachelor's degree level that is geared toward Norwegian companies
that want to establish themselves in developing countries. One of
the project's contributions will be to train local employees in
China so that they are maximally equipped to sell and maintain Q-Free's

green belt." The project is a collaboration between Sør-Trøndelag
University College (HiST), Mid Sweden University (MSU) and Nord-Trøndelag
University College (HiNT). This project has studied how the ability
to use IT is becoming a key element in increasing the different
regions' ability to compete in an information society. A range of
activities is planned as part of the main project in which improved
teamwork between the regional educational institutions and professional
workers can provide significant expertise in ICT. Preliminary project:
Fall 1999 - Spring 2001.
Project management: HiST / TISIP.
- Development and implementation of novel Imaging Velocimetry techniques
suited to large-scale hydraulic facilities. The project is part
of the EU's 5th Framework program. On commission from SINTEF, TISIP
is developing the software. The software will calculate 3D particle
pathways in fluid currents, based on synchronic video recordings
by 3 video cameras.
From Spring 2000 - 2002.
