The Norwegian Research Council has awarded MNOK 1 to this project aimed at the internationalization of industrial clusters.

Partners include University of Agder (project owner), GCE NODE, Stanford Research International, University of Nebraska-Omaha and several universities in Texas.

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.

– This is 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.
