Coastal Highway Route E39
NTNU is proud to be a partner to Statens Vegvesen (NPRA) in the research needed to realize one of the most challenging engineering tasks of our time.
Since 2013, 26 PhD candidates and post docs have started work on topics from project planning to fjord crossings and Life Cycle Analysis to make E39 a higway for the future.
NTNU will contribute to the research by using our best scientific researchers and making use of our advanced laboratories. In addition we will also allocate some of our own funding for PhD-scholarships in this area.
For the E-39 project it will be important to be attractive for master students from NTNU. We believe that active use of the research program to involve students from an early stage will make is easier to recruit students for PhD-studies and for working for NPRA.
