Projects
(2017-2020) Smart Sustainable City Regions in India
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, School of Planning and Architecture (SPA) in Delhi
Project funded by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU)
This project focuses on planning and sustainability issues in the context of the Smart City Mission proposed in the Government in India. Among other themes, we are looking at how the smart city interventions impact the most marginalized communities and informal settlements, with case studies in the cities of Pune and Delhi.
The four main research themes include:
1. Land, land-use conflicts and sprawl,
2. Water, its distribution and pricing,
3. Energy access, energy sources and pollution,
4. Mobility, and its impacts on the urban structure and the environment.
This project consists of the following components:
1. Student mobility at Master’s and PhD level, including joint annual fieldworks in India and Summer Schools in Norway
2. Joint publications
3. Joint seminar / conference
4. Development of an e-course

(2017-2020) SUSTAIN – Comparing Urban Sustainability Initiatives in Norway and the USA
Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Falk School of Sustainability and the Environment at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, USA
Project funded by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education (SIU)
The focus of the project is on sustainability and urban development issues in the contexts of de-industrializing and industrializing countries (USA, Norway and India). The main themes include: food security, water management, environmental policy, urban infrastructure and land-use planning.
This project consists of the following components:
1. Student mobility – annual summer school at Chatham University and exchange semester of Chatham students in Norway, including their participation in NTNU fieldwork in India
2. Joint publications
3. Development of an e-course

(ongoing) Live studio
“Live Studio” is a generic term for projects that are based on actual issues, and developed in real dialogue with external partners. The projects can be located in Norway or abroad. They may be building or planning projects.
The projects are mainly initiated by students in collaboration with external partners, but they can also be part of NTNU’s Master’s studies in architecture and planning. It is an important goal that the projects and processes have societal significance.
The faculty and “NTNU Live Studio” received the Norwegian Ministry of Educations award for outstanding education 2015.
