Together, we offer open urban innovation, co-creation and decision support for people-centric smart sustainable cities, supporting public and private sector as well as civic society with a unique merger of transformative, technological, artistic and practice-based research. With urban living labs, public-private partnerships and integrated design thinking, the initiative supports cities in their ambition to truly become cities for people, cities of culture, green cities, digital cities and learning cities – in short, truly smart and sustainable.

NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities coordinates amongst others the following projects and programmes: the   +CityxChange smart city lighthouse project, the EERA Joint Programme Smart CitiesHEU-NUP Horizon Europe Norwegian Urban Partnership. 

NTNU is a partner of the European Commission's New European Bauhaus initiative, and we contribute to the ENHANCE European Universities of Technology Alliance.
