Proud co-organizer of Ocean Week!
Ocean week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas, and the conference is a vital part in NTNU’s work to contribute to Norway’s role as an ocean nation.
Previous Ocean Weeks have received visits and contributions from leading scientists, artists, industry and business representatives, diplomats, politicians, activists, and even royalty when His Majesty King Harald V of Norway visited the conference in 2019.
In addition to the sessions, daily stands, art exhibits, robotic demos and workshops provide a great networking arena for the companies and institutions represented.
