Product development covers all activities between idea and production. Modern computing technology makes it possible to develop virtual prototypes where the products can be visualised and their strength calculated, allowing optimisation and testing before the physical prototypes are produced. This results in reductions in development time and costs.

Norut Technology will in the period 2004-2008 engage in a strategic research programme RECON - Renewal of Concrete Infrastructure.

The material technology group performs research and development activities for trade and industry and central and local government.

The term "cold climate" refers to the combined actions of low temperatures, snow, ice and wind, and possibly also the absence of daylight in the period when the sun is below the horizon. Cold Climate technology is technology that is specially developed to reduce disadvantages with - or exploit advantages of - the cold climate.

Norut Narvik's structural engineering research group performs research and development tasks of high quality within many areas:
