– Strategic Research Area at NTNU -

This strategic area ended in 2014. These are the four new strategic areas 2014–2023.

NTNU's research within ICT must have both national and international significance. Our strategy within ICT is organized according to methods for advanced and creative research. Researchers should have the freedom to do in-depth studies within their research fields. At the same time, NTNU can utilize a wide range of academic and scientific expertise – from physics to philosophy – to develop interdisciplinary products.
