Science Meets Industry Stavanger took place on Wednesday the 2nd of April with almost 60 participants, largely from the industry. The conference is a yearly event and is organized by NORCOWE in collaboration with Greater Stavanger. It took place at Måltidets Hus, Ipark - Innovasjonspark Stavanger.

NORCOWE's research was presented by the PhD students Ole-Erik V. Endrerud and Valerie Kumer, as well as Dr. Arunjyati Sarkar from Subsea 7 who presented work done during his PhD at the University of Stavanger. The Gwind project presented by Simen Malmin is a spin-off project from NORCOWE, while Lene Eliassen has also been working in NORCOWE at the University of Stavanger. She is now doing a Post Doc at NTNU in collaboration with Statkraft, a NORCOWE partner. Statoil and StormGeo are also partners in NORCOWE.
