Knowledge for change

Overcoming the grand societal challenges of our time will require new thinking and new knowledge. That is our strategy. NTNU Sustainability is one of four strategic research areas at NTNU for the period 2014-2023. The programme brings together the best minds from a range of disciplines to create the knowledge needed by society to understand and change unsustainable patterns of behaviour and development. NTNU Sustainability aims to be an international leader. 

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



A new PhD position is now open under the program Urban Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services. Application deadline is December 18th, 2016. More information about the position.

A green advent calendar has been developed to give inspiration for sustainability before Christmas! See the calendar here.
