NTNU Discovery is the idea-funding mechanism generated by the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) to fund early phase ideas and innovations. InnSep was the first recipient of funding in 2011 when the fund was established, and enabled InnSep to develop and perform the first full scale hydrocarbon testing of the Lynx Separator principle. This was the all-important start that allowed the technology to be qualified for use in the oil industry and branching out to other markets. The fund has supported 10-15 projects every year and several have become global successes.
