Norway has a new Minister of Education and Research

Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, Norway’s new Minister of Education and Research, will be placing higher priority on the internationalisation of research. In particular, he will promote more academic cooperation with the US and increased Norwegian participation under the new EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon 2020.

In addition to this issue’s profile of Mr Røe Isaksen, readers can also find out how an innovative project is improving safety at rail level crossings. The company WaveTrain Systems is steaming ahead worldwide with its new solution, which employs advanced sensor technology to warn people when a train is approaching a crossing. The system is reliable, simple to install and very cost-effective.
