Introduction NTNU Biotechnology

NTNU Biotechnology is one of the three enabling technology programs at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. Together they define the strategic core of NTNU’s long-term R&D commitment within natural science and technology.

The design of the NTNU Biotechnology program reflects the conviction that extensive transdisciplinary interaction between the life sciences, mathematical sciences and engineering is the key to transformative 21st century biotechnology. We have collaborations with SINTEF, the largest independent research organisation in Scandinavia, and St. Olavs hospital (Trondheim University Hospital), which is tightly integrated with our Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

NTNU is the host of Centre for Digital Life Norway a national centre with the goal of transforming Norwegian biotechnology research and education to increase innovation and value creation for society. The centre is funded by the Research Council of Norway under its BIOTEK2021 program.
