Trondheim is the largest city in the Trøndelag region, and the third largest in the country, following Oslo and Bergen. The city has almost 200.000 inhabitants.

Norway's largest university - the Norwegian University of Science and Technology - is located in Trondheim and has about 40.000 students. Trondheim is called the capital of science, technology and knowledge in Norway.


Innovation is not only an integral part of Trondheim's universities, but also of its public sector, which incorporates novel services from the cradle to the grave and augments democracy by partnering with the private sector, academia and civil society, making it an effective quadruple-helix model city. This strong provincial and municipal public leadership is demonstrated by Trondheim's University-City 3.0 Agreement, Europe's most comprehensive Municipality-University collaboration agreement.
