Gemini Centres

NTNU and SINTEF's Gemini Centres form a model for strategic cooperation in which scientific groups with parallel interests coordinate their scientific efforts and jointly operate their resources. As of 2012, SINTEF and NTNU have established 22 Gemini Centres that address everything from marine structural engineering to roads and transport to petrochemistry and catalysis. KinCat researcher

The objective and vision of the Gemini Centres
The objective of the Gemini Centres is to develop large scientific groups of higher quality than either of the partners could manage to build up on its own. There is an international demand for first-class scientific groups on the part of both project sponsors and students. For this reason, the Gemini Centres have adopted the following vision: To be an international joint force at the leading edge of research
