Norwegian Research Center for AI Innovation

The Norwegian Research Center for AI Innovation (NorwAI) is the largest academic initiative on AI innovation in Norway. Hosted at NTNU in Trondheim, the center coordinates research and innovation activities among three universities, two research institutes and 11 companies. With its long and impressive history of research on Big Data and AI and its experience with commercializing these technologies, NTNU is well positioned to lead this center of research-based innovation (SFI). Some of the largest and technologically most ambitious companies and research institutes in Norway have joined the consortium and promise to turn the center into a real powerhouse for AI-driven industrial innovation.

Internationally, NorwAI will do its best to consolidate and strengthen the Scandinavian applied AI communities. We believe that a closer collaboration among Scandinavian parties will be beneficial to us all and help us accelerate the use of sustainable and trustworthy AI across our industries.

After five years in preparation, NorwAI started its operations on 1 October 2020. We are looking forward to some very exciting years with groundbreaking AI research and innovative AI-driven solutions that will change Norwegian industry for ever.
