Norwegian Company Norront Seeks Partners for Eurostars Funding for LENR Research

Thanks to Alainco for pointing out the following post on LinkedIn by Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen of Norwegian engineering consulting company Norront who are seeking funding from the Eurostars research funding organization.

Hi, we are going to apply for the Eurostar funding program on September 11 for the development of lenr material and crystals in the atomic and nano regime.
We are currently searching for partners 3-4 from Eurostar countries, SMEs, large companies, research institutions and universities to participate in a joint research collaboration on LENR material and lattice development.

Each partner must contribute on their own project cost, our budget is estimated to 2 mill euro over a 3 year period bringing the total project cost to 6-8 mill euro for 3-4 partners from 2015-2018 where Eurostar funds up to 50% of the total project cost. Final project cost can be adjusted depending on partners.

Contact me know if you are interested in this Eurostar collaboration or are interested in participating.

Sincerely

Sindre Zeiner-Gundersen

    There’s a link here on top “Lenr companies” but I don’t know if its exhaustive. The newcomers are certainly not there.

  • Sanjeev

    Good to see the list of companies involved in lenr growing day by day.
    This has accelerated recently. Phonon, Bobcat, Avalanche power, Hydrogen Fusion Systems etc have joined the race. Perhaps I’m missing a few, but there is a new one every few weeks.

  • Gerard McEk

    I wonder who the customers will be: Industrial Heat, Brillouin, Defkalion? How do they know what to make, without LENR knowledge? Maybe a totally different technology (e.g. sputtering, cold deforming or nano cracking) is required when we finally start to understand how Cold Fusion works and that may take some time.

    Anyway, LENR material is a highly speculative business and I guess it will be difficult to find partners willing to invest in it.

      this company is an IP/patent specialist, and make research in energy… You can guess how they will make money.

      note that LENR is material science (see http://ec.europa.eu/research/industrial_technologies/pdf/emerging-materials-report_en.pdf ), and that scientifically this is where LENR is.

      LENR will be understood by specialist of material scientist, not by nuclear physicists.

      • Omega Z

        Oh, My.
        Are you saying nuclear physicists will have to take a back seat to material scientist. Such blasphemy.
        You best enter a witness protection program.

        • http://www.lenrnews.eu/lenr-summary-for-policy-makers/ AlainCo

          first I only risk my life in an academic building.
          military , like oil companies, can protect me. even engineers will respect the laws of war with me.

          it is not a joke, as Ed Storms and Jed Rothwell remind that some LENr research have been menaced on their life by anti-lenr fan.

          read “the science of LENR” the firsts chaptesr (2 or 3)

          • Omega Z

            Agreed, the physical threats would more likely come from outside the circle.
            Physicists would tend towards destroying ones credentials/reputation & getting your funding denied.

      • Gerard McEk

        I agree that material plays an essential role in Cold Fusion as it takes place in the lattice of some metals. Why and how is still being speculated, but that it is an nuclear reaction, most CF scientists agree upon (exception Mills et al). Because it is a nuclear reaction, nuclear physicists will eventually play an essential role in developing the theory. Material specialists will play an important role in the commercial development.

    There is now Cold Fusion initiatives in all Scandinavian Countries.
    Way to go Norway!!!

    Thanks AlainCo, very encouraging.

    woops… it is not eurostars train opérator, but eurostar funding program in the line of Eureka

    I think i forgot the s of eurostars too

  • bachcole

    So what is this about “crystals”. Is he referring to dilithium crystals? Dilithium crystals are difficult enough to obtain the imaginary world of Star Trek.

    • GreenWin

      Metallic lattices that host LENRs are sometimes referred to as crystal lattices. Nickel e.g. has a cubic crystal structure. http://www.webelements.com/nickel/crystal_structure.html

      The secret to dilithium crystals is simple – put two single lithium crystals within shouting distance of each other. :)

  • Curbina

    Very interesting to see a proposal for collaboration and in that range of budget. That’s clearly a change of the tide. I wonder how hard they are going to be attacked by the skeptics that are always preventing people of “being scammed”.

    Eurostars: https://www.eurostars-eureka.eu/home/what

    Eurostars is a transnational programme, where projects have
    partners from two or more Eurostars countries. Thanks to this
    international collaboration, SMEs can more easily gain access to new
    markets.
    The Eurostars programme is publicly financed with a total
    budget of 1.14 billion euro and is currently supported by 33 EUREKA
    countries and the European Union.
