A data integration workshop in Stavanger, on the final day of ONS, was also the final workshop of the NorTex Data Science Cluster project.

An application for a second project period, which would also include e-health as a topic and the University of Stavanger as a partner, is already filed.

“It would be wonderful if we could continue developing the cooperation that has been established in the NorTex project, financed through The Research Council of Norway’s  INTPART program. We are extreme satisfied with what we have accomplished and look forward to continuing this work in an INTPART phase 2. This is just the beginning,” says Ann Marchioro, Project Manager at GCE NODE.

Since 2015, the University of Agder, Rice University, the University of Texas – Austin, IRIS, GCE NODE and The Research Council of Norway have worked together in NorTex Data Science Cluster project.
