Norwegian University of Science and Technology Joins European Technology Network

The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway’s leading university for higher education in technology, has agreed to join the Science|Business Network of prominent European research institutions, in an effort to promote enterprise in science. The agreement is aimed at improving the dialogue between business and academia in Europe – long identified by experts as crucial to the region’s success in international technology markets. “Through this membership, technology from Trondheim will find a broader audience throughout Europe”, NTNU’s rector, Torbjørn Digenes says, “We are pleased to have such a great opportunity to present our technological solutions for the future to the global community. In the end the environment wins, once our clean tech solutions have become the standard all round.” NTNU excels in areas such as energy and petroleum, medical technology, materials, marine and maritime technology, ICT and globalization. NTNU has proved to be an attractive R&D partner; either alone or together with its on-campus neighbor, SINTEF, Scandinavia’s largest independent research institute. NTNU joins ten other leading European universities in the Science|Business Network. They are the University of Cambridge, ETH-Zurich, Karolinska Institutet, Imperial College London, University College London, TU Delft, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Warwick, Politecnico di Milano and ParisTech. Science|Business, www.sciencebusiness.net is the first independent news service that brings together buyers and sellers of emerging technologies - through its online news coverage, its subscriber-posting service, and its exclusive networking events. It does so with a top-quality news team, and a unique network of Europe's leading scientific institutions. They include the University of Cambridge, ETH-Zurich, Karolinska Institutet, and Imperial College London. Our editorial team is drawn from the world's top science and business publications. It is led by Richard L. Hudson and Peter Wrobel, former managing editors at the Wall Street Journal Europe and the leading science journal Nature. A global network of leading business and science journalists joins them to provide the smartest, and most international, perspectives on the commercialisation of science. They are advised by some of Europe's leading academic and business figures. And they are determined to break the mould in science journalism - to bring business intelligence and multi-disciplinary insight to the very earliest stages of R&D.
