Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020, logo

Active participation in the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation is a main priority for NTNU. Partnering with leading academics in European projects strengthens the quality and relevance of NTNU's research.

NTNU participate in 45 Horizon 2020-projects. We coordinate 14 of the projects and we are partner in 32 of the projects.


August 2016: INVADE is the largest Norwegian Horizon 2020-project in energy ever (in Norwegian). Five of 12 European partners in INVADE are Norwegian: Smart Innovation Østfold, Schneider Electric, eSmart Systems and NTNU. Total allocation to INVADE is 125 million NOK. Of this, the Norwegian partners gained as much as 68 million NOK.
