The melting pot –Science Meets Industry


Science Meets Industry conference took place Thursday, April 16 at Måltidets hus in Stavanger. The annual event is organized by NORCOWE in collaboration with Greater Stavanger. There were 65 particpants, with a majority of the participants coming from the industry.

As always, the aim of Science Meets Industry was to provide an arena for science and industry to meet and exchange knowledge, challenges and opportunities within the offshore wind. We are happy to say that we succeeded! Thanks to the speakers for good presentations and to the participants who took the time to make science and industry meet.


Next Science Meets Industry will be held September 15 in Bergen.

The programme for Science Meets Industry Bergen will be available early June.
