Krisuvik (Skadian: Krísuvík) is a city and municipality in Amundsen-Stat on the south shore of Lake Brann in the Trond Valley. At the end of the first quarter of 2016, the municipality's population was 126,181 and the metro population was 175,712.

Krisuivk was chosen as the site of the Skadian Institute of Innovation and Technology in 2001, leading to an influx of high-technology and electronics industries to the municipality. The area rapidly urbanized as companies moved their businesses to the city, bringing with them tech-startups and greater demand for housing. Most migrants coming to Skade settle in the city or the neighboring planned community of Ryddigsted, which was built as an alternate location for incoming companies. Krisuvik has the highest population growth rate of any Skadian city, and the highest proportion of non-native residents in relation to the total population.
