Background and activities
Annemie Wyckmans, PhD, is Vice Dean of Research at NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Faculty of Architecture and Fine Art.
Wyckmans is professor in Sustainable Architecture / Smart Cities. Her main responsibilities are developing and promoting strategic research in architecture, urban planning and art at Norwegian, EU and international Level (including China), in particular related to Smart Cities; and facilitating interaction between research, education and industry, to ensure capacity building of and awareness among future professionals (master and PhD). She is currently main supervisor for 3 PhD candidates and 3 postdoctoral researchers.
Fields of competence
She is mainly working with research and innovation on smart cities and neighbourhoods, aiming to promote the role of architectural and urban design in smart, energy-efficient, climate-resilient cities (e.g. EERA Joint Programme Smart Cities, FP7-funded «ZenN Near zero energy neighbourhoods» and RAMSES «Climate change adaptation, mitigation and sustainable development in cities», and IEA SHC Task 51 «Solar energy in urban planning»). She leads the Norwegian EU-shadow group on Energy-Efficient Buildings and Smart Cities and Communities, and a corresponding network at NTNU.
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.
