Ocean Week 2023
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.
