Welcome to Trondheim
The Norwegian Group for Rock Mechanics welcomes you to Norway for EUROCK 2020, the international symposium of ISRM.
The event will take place at the Clarion Hotel & Congress in the beautiful city of Trondheim from June 15th to 19th.
The historical city of Trondheim was founded in 997 as a trading post during the Viking Age and served as the capital of Norway until 1217. Today it is the third largest city in Norway and known as the technological hub of Norway, hosting the largest university, the Norwegian University of Science and Tehnology (NTNU), as well as the Foundation for Science and Industrial Research (SINTEF), St. Olavs University Hospital and several other technology-oriented institutions.
Trondheim offers easy access by direct flights from several European airports, as well as direct flights from all major Norwegian airports and several daily departures by train and bus from Oslo.
