Innovative Methods and Concepts in Offshore Wind Energy is the title of NORCOWE's summer school 2014. The summer school will take place at Strand Hotel Fevik, at the south coast of Norway, from Monday August 11th till Friday August 15th.



The aim of the NORCOWE summer school 2014 is to examine

  • The development and execution of innovation strategies
  • The impact of innovation on offshore technology
  • New methods in analysis and measurements
  • New concepts within wind energy and examine future directions

The week will be composed of lectures and group work as well as social activities. An excursion to MacGregor in Kristiansand will take place on Wednesday afternoon. In 2014 MacGregor won the Offshore Support Journal's Innovation of the Year award for their three-axis motion compensated crane.  

NORCOWE's summer school is this year hosted by NORCOWE in cooperation with the University of Agder, and is organized by professor Hamid R. Karimi (UiA), adjunct professor Finn Gunnar Nielsen (UiB/Statoil), professor Jasna B. Jakobsen (UiS), professor Thomas Bak (AAU) and the NORCOWE administration.
