Education and dissemination of results
The different Master studies at UiA, UiB, UiS, and AAU form a major recruitment base for the PhD positions at the centre. NORCOWE currently has 15 PhD students associated with the center, in addition to several Master students. We encourage close cooperation with the industry, and several of our PhD students have co-supervisors from the industry.
The annual NORCOWE Summer School on offshore wind energy provides an opportunity to invite leading international researchers as speaker as well as promoting interaction between academia and industry. The Summer School is open for participants from the industry as well as PhD students from outside of NORCOWE.
NORCOWE organizes two internal seminars each year for an update on the latest research where also industry partners are invited. NORCOWE also organizes several workshops and seminars throughout the year, some of them yearly events and in collaboration with partners such as Greater Stavanger, Fraunhofer IWES, NREL and NOWITECH. Annually NORCOWE arrange Science Meets Industry twice, both in Stavanger and Bergen. This serves as an arena for major dissemination of our work, besides being a meeting place for researchers and the industry actors within offshore wind. An overview of the activities in NORCOWE can be found in the annual report.
