“We received 110 internship applications for this summer, and after having finished the sorting, interviewing and selection process, we were left with 21 excellent candidates. They will be working closely with many of our researcher” says Elin Backe Christophersen, advisor at Simula.
The summer school will cover contemporary topics in smart energy systems, such as smart power grid, vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and communication technologies, as well as network security for smart energy systems, and explore emerging approaches towards energy intelligence such as machine learning and blockchain. Students will participate in a series of lectures from speakers from academia and industry, as well as work on a project assignment.
Technology and programming is gradually becoming integrated into the curriculum in Norwegian schools, to a much larger extent than previously. Some selected schools have already been trying out new programming and coding subjects in the classroom. The Norwegian government have decided to have new school curriculum ready by 2020, focusing on more in-depth learning and practical aspects, and not least a larger focus on technological applications, programming and algorithmic thinking.
Simula has strong background on research-based innovation and will contribute by leading and monitoring the advancement of the pilot experiments among other tasks. Senior Research Scientist Dusica Marijan and Chief Research Scientist Arnaud Gotlieb will represent Simula in this collaboration.
Simula School of Research and Innovation samarbeider med skoler i Oslo, Asker og Bærum om prosjektet Prepare – økt fokus på realfag i skolen. Prosjektet driver formidlingsopplæring av teknologi- og realfagsstudenter, slik at disse kan fungere som forbilder og formidlere av sine respektive fagfelt. Hovedmålsetningen i prosjektet er at ambassadørene skal bidra til inspirasjon og økt interesse for teknologi og realfag, gjennom en serie skolebesøk ved utvalgte ungdomsskoler og videregående skoler i Akershus og Oslo-regionen.
HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway has visited Kalkulo AS stand at ONS Clean Energy Park. Christian Tarrou even had a unique chance to give a short Torch pitch for the future king to be. Iselin Nybø, the Minister of Research and Higher Education, and Anita Krohn Traaseth, CEO of Innovation Norway, have also visited our stand at ONS.
“We believe in education” Marianne Aasen, Director of Simula School of Research and Innovation, says during the biweekly cake session at Simula. She continues: “We also believe that the students want to work with applied science, which they get a change to do here.”
Since the start of the current EU framework programme for research, Horizon 2020, Simula is the sixth largest Norwegian recipient of funding from the EU. Only SINTEF, Borregaard and the three largest universities have received more funding from the EU.
Målgruppen for kurset er i hovedsak lærere som skal undervise i forsøksfaget programmering, Teknologi i Praksis eller Forskning i Praksis. Lærere i videregående skole kan også delta om de er interessert i å vite mer om AstroPi-konkurransen. Det er gratis å delta for lærere.

The Norwegian Government is going to invest more time, money, and attention to research and knowledge development in the coming years. This was the main message Prime Minister Erna Solberg delivered when visiting Simula Tuesday morning.
“We politicians talk a lot about the future, but we tend to spend the money on the present. Next week, however, we will present our new long-term plans for research and knowledge development, and technology is one of the fields we want to strengthen. I am excited to announce the plan”, she said.
As directed by the board, Simula conducted a thorough evaluation of the benefits and costs of renewing the current rental agreement at Technopolis versus the possibility of relocating. This evaluation took into account the various impacts of location on Simula’s activities and the working conditions for employees. In the end, a move to downtown Oslo emerged as a clear winner.
Approximation with sparsely connected deep networks
Many of the data analysis and processing pipelines that have been carefully engineered by generations of mathematicians and practitioners can in fact be implemented as deep networks. Allowing the parameters of these networks to be automatically trained (or even randomized) allows to revisit certain classical constructions.
Aslak Tveito, Director of Simula, gave the visitors a general introduction to Simula before they were told more about our three main activities: research, education and innovation. Marianne Aasen, Director of Simula School of Research and Innovation, talked about education, especially digitalisation in continuing education. She explained among other things how Simula teaches teachers how to use programming in their own classroom, which the visitors found interesting.
