The reference group meetings are a great opportunity to disseminate results, to participate in discussions and to get valuable feedback from an industrial perspective.
In addition to dissemination of results, the upcoming reference group meetings have reserved time for discussions regarding spin-off opportunities. This is a bottom-up approach to identify spin-off opportunities. The aim is to surface interesting research topics and important industrial challenges to be solved in new projects.
The SFI Offshore Mechatronics General Assembly will take place on November 11. 13.00-14.00. The meeting will be hosted at UiA, Campus Grimstad, Meetingroom N3 049 Utsikten, I4Helse, UiA Campus Grimstad)
