Trondheim as a smart, healthy and active city

Sunset from Keiservarden in BodøIs it possible to build a new part of Trondheim into a health and environmental friendly city for its inhabitants?

Trondheim health cluster and NTNU recently hosted a 2 day work shop discussing how to develop the Rotvoll area into a smart healthy city part. Through an interdisciplinary discussion, several key focus areas including health, mobility in town, road and housing structure, pollution, noise and new innovative technologies were presented and discussed.

Through interdisciplinary planning it is possible to develop a moving city, allowing for walking and biking as the main mode of transportation, availability of healthy food and environmentally sustainable choices. To achieve this, the smart choices need to be the easiest choice to make.

– Exercise gives me energy

“My two main reasons for exercising are. Firstly, I would like to spend as much time of my life as possible with my children. To be able to do that, I need to take good care of myself, and at the same time serve as a healthy role model for them integrating sports and play into their childhood upbringing. Secondly, exercise gives me energy, balance and cam. I simply function better when I exercise”

Kent Roger Tangvik, participant in the TV show “71 grader nord”

Hvordan skape innovasjon av medisinsk forskning?

Det var tema for den årlige forskningssamlingen med alle 14 K.G. Jebsen – sentrene for medisinsk forskning. Årets samling var i flotte Holmsbu med et interessant program som i hovedsak dreide seg om innovasjon i forskning.

Gruppebilde

Vi i K.G. Jebsen – senter for hjertetrening er svært stolt og takknemlig over å ha fått to nye år som et K.G. Jebsen – forskningssenter, og har i løpet av de tre årene vi har vært en del av dette forskningsprogrammet lært mye, både på forskningssamlingene men også gjennom evalueringene og tilbakemeldingene vi har fått fra stiftelsen underveis.

Det er inspirerende å treffe andre forskere som jobber med translasjonsforskning på et høyt nivå, utveksle erfaringer og ideer og diskutere mulige samarbeid. Vi setter også stor pris på denne muligheten til å treffe alle som jobber i stiftelsen. Takk til K.G. Jebsen – Senter for betennelsesforskning som var årets arrangør. Vi gleder oss til neste års samling i Tromsø som skal arrangeres av det nye K.G. Jebsen – Senter for tromboseforskning (TREC).
