A GCE Collaboration Project – GCE Subsea – GCE Blue Maritime – GCE NODE
GCE Subsea, GCE Blue Maritime and GCE NODE were in 2016 awarded 1,96 million Norwegian kroner for a joint project from Hordaland County Council. The main objective of the project is to contribute to increased competitiveness in the GCE’s partner and member companies’ main markets nationally and internationally. This includes new business models and new technologies for lowering costs. The project focus has been on four strategic areas, closely linked to Industry 4.0, all of which have the potential for significant cost reductions; framework conditions, innovations along the supply chain, new production technologies, and new maintenance and operating systems. Series of industry focus group meetings and workshops have been conducted.
The performance of small- and medium sized enterprises (SME) is of great importance. The three GCE’s in Norway have set focus on:
- How to capitalize on the possibilities of the digital transformation
- How to stimulate to increased innovation, profitability and employment
At this Summit you will learn about the findings in the project, you will visit the most modern and advanced robotic test-lab in Europe (Mechatronic Innovation Lab) and be inspired by the German 4.0 MAI Carbon Cluster.
There will be many opportunities for mingling and in-depth discussions. See you in October.
