OW2021 description

Ocean Week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas, and the conference is a vital part in NTNU’s work 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. Our contributors and partners help to make the event a success every year. 

Our Oceans are a crucial part of life on this Earth.  The waters connect us all across boundaries and ecosystems. Yet they are rapidly changing, and ocean science must keep up in order to deal with the complex challenges ahead. For Ocean Week 2021, we examine the global movement of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development through a national perspective, and ask the question: “How can NTNU, Trondheim, and Norway contribute to achieving the UN goals for sustainable oceans?” To help answer this, we gather researchers, scientists and innovators from NTNU, SINTEF and other partners within Norway.   

Ocean Week will engage participants with presentations and discussions that aim to inform and to inspire. We invite researchers, policymakers and engaged citizens to take part in shaping ‘the science we need for the Ocean we want.’

Previous Ocean Week Conferences

Ocean week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas, and the conference is a vital part in NTNU’s work to contribute to Norway’s role as an ocean nation.

Previous Ocean Weeks have received visits and contributions from leading scientists, artists, industry and business representatives, diplomats, politicians, activists, and even royalty when His Majesty King Harald V of Norway visited the conference in 2019.

At Ocean Week 2018 and Ocean Week 2019 around 300 participants each day followed more than 200 presentations where national and international speakers presented the latest developments on Ocean Sciences and discussed the impact that Ocean Research, technology, innovation, policy making & social tendencies has in our lives.

In addition to the sessions, daily stands, art exhibits, robotic demos and workshops provide a great networking arena for the companies and institutions represented.
