One of the main goals of NTNU is to provide Norway with an internationally competitive level of technological know-how. The university has given priority to four research areas where NTNU is working to be among the internationally leading universities.
NTNU has designated four strategic areas that have formed networks across faculties and departments to bring the best minds to work on cross-disciplinary subjects.
- Ocean science
- Health, welfare and technology
- Sustainable societal development
These strategic areas are under development during the spring of 2014.
