Norwegian University of Science and Technology
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is the largest Norwegian university with a focus on educating Norway’s future engineers, scientists, and technology specialists. The institution also has a strong reputation for industry collaborations in technology, transportation, and energy. NTNU and Yale have been strengthening their relationship since 2014, focusing on research collaboration in medicine. Yale and NTNU’s medical schools are closely connected, their efforts coordinated through remote leadership meetings.
At least 10 joint medical research projects are now underway, including work related to asthma, cancer cells, inflammatory bowel disease, sepsis, and systems neuroscience. In addition to Yale’s world-leading facilities, collaborative research with NTNU has the HUNT Biobank, and the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, at its disposal. NTNU also provides funding for a few postdocs at Yale every year, facilitating outstanding research without financial barriers.
