45 people from both academia and the industry were present at the first meeting discussing the direction for half the different work packages at NTNUs new centre CIUS, a Centre for Innovative Ultrasound Solutions for health care, maritime, and oil & gas.
– At this point, before we can start the work, it is important for us to point out the further direction for the research in some of the work packages at the centre. Work packages 1-4, in ultrasound knowledge and technology, and no 7, in clinical feasibility, are the fundament onto which all the other work packages will build, Asta Håberg, the head of CIUS, says.
- A “work package” (WP) is a working group. Read more about the different WPs.
CIUS is a Norwegian Research Council appointed centre for research-based innovation (SFI) and is located at Department of Medical Imaging and Circulation at Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim.
– CIUS will deliver novel ultrasound technology solutions for the benefit of the involved partners, new diagnostic tools for the benefit of patients and the Norwegian healthcare system, important knowledge disseminated in highly recognized scientific journals, and skilled personnel to further exploit the future potential of ultrasound imaging in Norwegian industries, healthcare and academia, Håberg says.
Soon, probably before the Easter holidays, CISU will advertise a vacancy of up to 9 new phd and post doc positions at the centre.
– We are now looking for academically excellent, independent and creative PhD students with education in electronics, acoustics, cybernetics, physics, and mathematics, Håberg says.
The positions will be announces at NTNU’s page for vacancies.
