GCE NODE provides financial support to a limited number of professionals who will participate in a workshop on Big Data at OTC in Houston.

The University of Agder heads the project Offshore Data Community, in which GCE NODE, Stanford Research International, University of Nebraska-Omaha and several universities in Texas also participate. The idea is for companies to build competence within data analytics and integration in offshore operations and equipment, mobility scheme, competence development and dissemination activities. Offshore Data Community is more of a collaboration project than a research project.

– A fantastic opportunity for industrial developers, researchers and students to learn from the best in an important business area for the future. All industries and businesses are currently trying to develop strategies for increased data integration and the usages of data analysis in products and services. This project will create Transatlantic linkages between research and industry environments, says Søren Kragholm, NODE’s Project Manager.

Offshore Data Community is organizing a workshop in Houston on May 7th. NODE encourages more NODE-companies to participate and offers NOK 15,000 to pay for travel and accommodation for a limited number of people.

If you are interested, please send an e-mail to Marit Dolmen (marit@gcenode.no) before April 27th stating: Why you apply for support, the relevance this workshop would have for your work and how your company would benefit from your participation.
