Oceans in Change – Connecting towards the Ocean Decade

Our oceans are rapidly changing, and ocean science must keep up in order to deal with the complex challenges ahead. At Ocean Week we take the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development as a point of departure 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 and scientists from all ocean related research disciplines at NTNU and facilitate presentations and discussions that lay the foundations for groundbreaking interdisciplinary ocean research. We invite policymakers, businesspeople and engaged citizens to take part in shaping the Science we Need for the Ocean we Want.


About Ocean Week

About Ocean Week

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.

We have placed some of the photos from previous conferences below, and more can be found here.

You can find the program for 2018 here, and 2019 here.
