“Career Day provides an opportunity to showcase GCE NODE. Many University of Agder students will find their way into our cluster companies. We are keen on attracting the brightest minds to our industry,” says Anne-Grete Ellingsen, CEO of GCE NODE.
The 15thedition of Career Day say thousands of students and some 80 companies at the exhibition stands in the university’s main hall at the Grimstad campus
GCE NODE started the day by giving a presentation in the main auditorium. Ellingsen talked about core competence and how technology from oil and gas is transferred to new ocean industries.
Later, GCE NODE asked a group of students to discuss the future energy mix, and how oil and gas fits into the mix. In general, oil and gas were considered to continue to be an important source of energy, even though everyone agrees that renewable energy sources, in particular wind and solar, will play an increasingly important role.
Throughout the day, GCE NODE had a stand with lots of visitors stopping by.
