The city of Trondheim

Trondheim and the Mid-Norway region are steeped in both history and today’s world. Think of it as an ancient city with a modern soul. Trondheim was Norway’s first capital city, founded more than 1,000 years ago, in 997 - but now instead of Viking raiders and Hanseatic traders, you will find jazz musicians and an international student body savouring Trondheim city life. The city’s cafes spill out onto cobblestone streets lined with colourful wooden buildings, while the twin towers and copper-clad spire of Europe’s northernmost gothic cathedral frame the southern skyline.

Trondheim is the leader among Norwegian regions for technological R&D activity. This activity is strongly oriented toward high technology with the electronics manufacturers such as Atmel, communication devices (Nordic Semiconductors) being world leaders, as well as software providers such as the major Web-search-tech companies and others complement the traditional Norwegian research strengths such as in Oil&Gas, marine technologies and fish and seafarming tecnologies. The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, NTNU, has its main campus almost inside the city-centre.
