Apurgo actively collaborates with customers, companies, academia and other expertise environments to develop even more energy-efficient solutions for all types of buildings.
Right from the start in 2009, we have worked closely with NTNU. Together with NTNU, we run product development, research and knowledge sharing. We still have NTNU students who write bachelor’s or master’s theses with us, with good learning outcomes both ways. NTNU is one of Norway’s leading universities and has several disciplines relevant to our business. The university also takes an active role in finding new knowledge and new solutions for a more sustainable world.
SINTEF has also been with us from the start. As one of Europe’s largest research institutes with very high competence in technology, natural sciences and social sciences, SINTEF is an important collaboration partner for us. Among other things, we work together with SINTEF to find the best solutions for combating Legionella. In the SESSILE project, we collaborate with SINTEF and NTNU to find the most optimal design and operation of tap water installations in buildings that treat Legionella.
Innovasjon Norge (Innovation Norway) has been with us and supported us since the start. They have been a very important partner for us when it comes to the development of the company, but also made it possible for us to invest heavily in technological innovation. Innovasjon Norge has contributed the knowledge and support to become competitive both nationally and internationally.
Forskningsrådet (The Research Council of Norway) has supported us in several research projects. We have a close and good collaboration, and their arrangements have made it easier for us to participate in larger projects. They have extensive knowledge of the EU and how we can take part in research and innovation programs both at home and abroad.
Regionalt forskningsfond Trøndelag (RRF Trøndelag)
The regional research fund Trøndelag has helped us to develop our commitment to research and development in Trøndelag. RRF has shown how we can collaborate with others across disciplines, industries and industries. This collaboration is important to us when it comes to developing new business areas.
