On 19 October, CERN signed a collaboration agreement with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway’s largest engineering school.

NTNU and CERN have a long tradition of collaboration in training students through the CERN doctoral, fellowship and technical student programmes and for joint projects in the field of knowledge and technology transfer. In many cases, these programmes serve as a gateway to research and development projects.

With this agreement, NTNU and CERN will further their shared wish to work together in training a new generation of engineers in all fields of interest common to both institutes, such as electrical, electronic, mechanical and process engineering, mechatronics, information and communications technology, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
