The Faculty of Engineering and Sciences at the University of Agder (UiA) has several research groups and education programs of high relevance to NORCOWE.
The mechatronics group has well established research projects with the NODE cluster.
The group that works on renewable energy focus on integration of distributed energy sources in the main electrical grid.
UiA also host a strong research group in information and communication technology (ICT), including a separate PhD-program, and expects to find synergetic effects between the research on wireless communication and sensor technology in the centre.
UiA is also host of the Norwegian Motion Lab.
