NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities

NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities


NTNU Smart Sustainable Cities is a cross-disciplinary knowledge cluster of architects, planners, designers, artists, engineering, ICT, social and economic sciences. 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 URBAN-EU-CHINA Innovation Platform on Sustainable Urbanisation, the EERA Joint Programme Smart Cities, the SiNoPSE Sino-Norwegian Partnership in Sustainable Energy, PI-SEC Planning Instruments for Smart Energy Communities, ENHANCE European Universities of Technology Alliance and HEU-NUP Horizon Europe Norwegian Urban Partnership. 

NTNU is partner of the EU commissions New European Bauhaus initiative, and we are starting a new initiative around the European Green Deal: Green Deal Cities.
