Huawei launched the Seeds for the Future Program in Norway in 2013 in partnership with the Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU). That year, four students took part in a one-week program to learn about Huawei's dynamic global business. In 2015, the program was expanded to become a two-week program that combined training in culture and technology in both Beijing and Shenzhen. Huawei Norway sponsored five top Norwegian students from NTNU to join the Seeds program in 2015 and six students in 2016. A total of 15 students have so far attended the program and eight more Norwegian students are expected to join the Seeds program in 2017.
