Background and activities
Annemie Wyckmans is professor and leads NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities at NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Architecture and Design.
Her main goal is to promote smart sustainable cities, through research, innovation and education. She leads several cooperation projects with public and private sector in Norway, EU and China.
Annemie is Project Coordinator of the smart city lighthouse project +CityxChange, programne coordinator of the EERA Joint Programne on Smart Cities, leader of the Horizon Europe Norwegian Urban Partnership and of the URBAN-NORWAY-CHINA Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanization.
The projects developed by Annemie and her team, are based on the principles “Experts in Team”: out of the lab, into the city, with experimentation and quadruple helix cooperation. All current projects include open urban innovation, together with cities and industry stakeholders, and including citizen engagement.
She has an MSc in Architectural Engineering from the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, a PhD in Building Technology and a postdoctoral degree on education for environment-friendly architecture from NTNU.
In 2010 she initiated the international interdisciplinary MSc programme in Sustainable Architecture at NTNU, and has led an interdisciplinary Experts in Team course in Sustainable Architecture at NTNU 2006-2013. Wyckmans has systematically used her training as facilitator in Experts in Team, to develop and lead cooperation projects with public and private sector (triple helix).
