Science meets industry in Stavanger

Venue: Richard Johnsens gate 4 Stavanger, Norway

The yearly conference Science Meets Industry – Stavanger will take place Wednesday 10th April 2019, at Måltidets Hus.

The conference is organized by Norwegian Offshore Wind Cluster in collaboration with NORCOWE, University of Stavanger and Greater Stavanger.

The aim of the conference is to promote offshore wind developments in Norway. This is an international conference with participant from the Nordic countries.  During this conference Decom Tools project will be presented to relevant actors in the Norwegian wind energy industry.

In this conference  we expect to have a technical feedback of the Decom Tools proposals and to link relevant expertise from the Nordic countries to our project deliverables.
