NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities

NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities is a cross-disciplinary competence cluster in which we develop transformative research methods in the interface between technology, design and people, to support cities, citizens and society change practices towards a sustainable low-carbon future.

Our ambition is to create projects that show the potential of smart cities and societies when architects, planners, designers and artists take a central role in their creation, in close cooperation with other core disciplines such as engineering, ICT, social and economic sciences. NTNU is also leading   - a Smart City Lighthouse project with Trondheim and Limerick as leading cities. This project started in November 2018 and aims to develop feasible and realistic demonstration projects in climate-friendly and sustainable urban environments.

The interdisciplinary Smart Sustainable Cities group work in close collaboration with NTNU Sustainability and NTNU Energy. The group is also playing a leading role in several Norwegian, EU and international projects; including China.
