The NTNU process

NTNU has appointed two project groups, one to prepare factual information about NTNU's operations for a concept study (the KVU, or Concept Choice Development Group) and another that has as its mandate to think creatively about NTNU's future (the Vision Group). These two groups have taken over from the former project group for campus work at NTNU.

The KVU Group's main task is to support the Ministry of Education and Research and Rambøll Consulting with updated and correct information about NTNU.

The Vision Group will look much further into the future, and is developing visions and scenarios for NTNU from a 30-50 year perspective.

The project groups would now like to hear what you think.

Go to the campus development web pages

The project groups have established their own web pages about NTNU's campus development. (Currently only in Norwegian, but English pages are in progress.)

Here you'll find:

  • Contact information
  • Background information for campus development
  • Case documents
  • Media clips about campus development
  • An overview of arenas for debate
  • Inspiration from other campus projects

The web pages will be updated continuously.

Where things stand now

The official startup for the KVU work was at a common meeting between the Ministry of Education and Research, Rambøll and NTNU on 16 May. Both the KVU Group and the Vision Group started working right after this meeting.

The KVU Group

The KVU Group has received an extensive information request from Rambøll, including:

  • Documentation of NTNU's historical, educational and scientific production
  • Financial and technical data related to existing buildings, operations and maintenance, logistics and area requirements.
  • Prospects for how the campus might be developed in the future under current guidelines.

Earlier reports are an important foundation for these deliveries, but we need to update our data, partially also for the production of other types of data.

The KVU Group will finalize its contributions by the end of October at the latest.

The Vision Group
The Vision Group will finalize its work by the end of 2013. The Vision Group will provide input that should contribute to developing a campus solution that will strengthen NTNU's future competitiveness – which in turn is also linked to the recruitment of students.

Key issues for the group include:

  • How should NTNU fulfill its social mission in the future?
  • How can NTNU develop a modern campus structure, where students want to be – and that is attractive to both future students and scientists?
  • How can NTNU use its physical layout to enhance the integration of research and education?
  • And how can NTNU help to facilitate for interdisciplinary work, both in research and teaching?

The Vision Group's work will also contribute to the KVU work by suggesting likely development needs for NTNU's campus of the future.

Background

The Government wants to decide on how to meet NTNU's current and future needs for space.

The Ministry of Education and Research has therefore appointed Rambøll AS to prepare a 'choice of concept' evaluation (KVU).

The purpose is to evaluate which campus solutions would benefit NTNU given a time frame of at least 50 years. The main need motivating the project is the state of the facilities at Dragvoll.

Two main concepts

The Ministry of Education and Research has defined two main concepts:

  • further development of NTNU with activities distributed between Gløshaugen and Dragvoll much as they are today
  • or increasing the density of the NTNU campus by re-establishing the activities on the Dragvoll campus closer to Gløshaugen.

Both concepts will be compared with a 'zero' alternative representing the current situation. It may be relevant to investigate additional alternatives. Rambøll AS is to complete the concept evaluation in December 2013.

The final evaluation documents are owned by the Ministry of Education and Research.
