NTNU is a leading science and technology university and as of 1st of January 2016, Norway’s largest university with 39 000 students and almost 400 doctoral dissertations per year, as a result of merging with the University Colleges of Ålesund, Gjøvik and Sør-Trøndelag. NTNU will participate in CHANGE through the Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory (Colourlab) and Visual Computing lab, within the Department of Computer Science (IDI), Faculty if Information technology and Electrical Engineering. Since its foundation in 2001 Colourlab has risen to become an internationally leading research in the field of colour imaging science and image- and video processing. The Colourlab core group consists of 30 people including the academic permanent faculty, post-docs, and PhD students. (www.colourlab.no, http://www.idi.ntnu.no/grupper/vis) NTNU is a cooperating partner of DARIAH (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities).
The Colourlab owns excellent laboratory facilities, which includes spacious (>200 m2) laboratory areas for research and teaching activities. It is a base for extensive R&D activities, ranging from fundamental colour science to applied colour imaging technology. Furthermore, the laboratory facilities of the Department of Manufacturing and Civil Engineering will be made available for ApPEARS. (see more)
