NTNU Sustainability

By its very nature, sustainability is a global challenge. The greatest societal challenge of our time is twofold. We must combat poverty and injustice; at the same time, we must take care of the local and the global environment for present and future generations.

NTNU’s research on sustainable development of society includes environmental, economic and social aspects in the broadest sense.


Pilot Projects

The purpose of the pilot projects is:

  • to work on some themes that involve researchers across the boundaries of academic environments at NTNU
  • to establish a position in relation to research programmes at the national and international level
  • to help in highlighting new key areas at NTNU
