Subsea Operation – Annual Conference 2016

1. March 2016

Nordic Innovators is pleased to announce that we will participate at the Norwegian Oil and Gas - network for underwater operations - one-day conference at the Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority premises, Ullandhaug (Stavanger) - Thursday 3 March 2016. The conference is co-hosted by ExxonMobil and Petroleum Safety Authority and is an ‘open - free of charge’ conference.

The Norwegian Oil and Gas Association has invited Nordic Innovators as one of the keynote speakers for the conference where we will present a talk on ‘Public funding for Oil & Gas related research and development projects’.

The great Norwegian O&G industry is facing very challenging times due to the collapse in the global oil price, and the situation has already cased major negative impacts across the sector in Norway. However, in a time when Norwegian O&G companies are reducing their budgets, the European Framework Programme for research, development and innovation, Horizon 2020, can bring in new opportunities for the O&G companies that wants to invest in new areas. As an example, the technology knowledge within the O&G industry can be used to respond to the Societal Challenges in Horizon 2020. The Research Council of Norway (RCN) has identified almost 100 relevant Horizon 2020 calls for petroleum related technologies, the full list can be found at RCNs homepage.

This is the message that Tor Arne Johnsen from Nordic Innovators will present at the conference!
