Industry Science Meet-up
On November 22 Subsea Valley, Inven2 and UiO:Energy arranged what we’ve termed an Industry Science Meet-up. More than 60 people from both the private and public sector spent an afternoon in Oslo Science Park listening to short presentations given by university researchers and partners from the industry cluster.
The talks spanned a very wide range of topics, from CO2 storage to digitalization and robots, from bio-cement to solar energy. For UiO the event represented an excellent opportunity to showcase a few of the relevant research groups at our university. Furthermore, the presentations from the Subsea Valley companies showed very clearly how digitalization is currently transforming the energy sector.
This is further emphasized by the fact that from January 1st, the Subsea Valley will be “upgraded” to a National Centre of Expertise, focusing on both digitalization and more sustainable technology. The new cluster is called NCE Energy Technology, and UiO i very much looking forward to strengthening the research collaboration with key players in the NCE.
