Smart Sustainable Cities

The NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities Group is formed to pursue high value integrated design and technologies for the smart city that is the energy-efficient, resilient and healthy city. The group is playing a leading role in several national, EU and international projects; including China. 

The group consists of experts from material detailing to urban morphology, from energy and mobility systems to governance, citizens and smart tools and data.

Our activities include good, visible lighthouse projects in cooperation with and support of municipal and industry partners, as well as meticulous translation of design characteristics into indicators, targets and approaches that can be included in assessment tools, certification, budgets and policy strategies.

The interdisciplinary Smart Sustainable Cities group contributes to three major Thematic Strategic Areas: NTNU EnergyNTNU Sustainability, and NTNU Health.
