Heading Ocean Week

Ocean Week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas. The conference is a vital part of NTNU’s effort to contribute to Norway’s role as an ocean nation. 
As the signature event of NTNU Oceans, the purpose of Ocean Week is to lay foundations for groundbreaking interdisciplinary ocean research and for collaboration across sectors to solve the sustainability challenges of the Oceans.
The conference is always held in the first week of May.

Previous Ocean Week Conferences


Since NTNU Ocean's establishment in 2014, Ocean Week has been held seven times.

Previous Ocean Weeks have received visits and contributions from leading scientists, artists, industry and business representatives, diplomats, politicians, activists, and even royals when His Majesty King Harald V of Norway visited the conference in 2019.
In 2022 Minister of Fisheries and Ocean Policy Bjørnar Selnes Skjæran (Ap) contributed at Ocean Week in Trondheim. In 2021 Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) attended the conference with a talk on The Ocean Panel and the Ocean Decade.

We are grateful for the opportunity through all these years to create an arena for the big blue talks.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed and who participated in the various events at the conference.
