THE OCEAN is launching a new meeting arena for sharing of knowledge, cooperation and development of technology across the blue industries. The first event will be in Bergen on 17th of September 2019. THE OCEAN will be a yearly event, and the planning of further major investment in 2020 already started.

Join the event 17. September 2019.

The ocean industries have been responsible for some of the technology waves that has laid much of the foundation for the modern and high-tech Norway. THE OCEAN will ensure a sustainable utilization of natural resources and at the same time develop new possibilities and new global markets for the west and the rest of Norway.

– Our aim is that this will become an important arena to stimulate increased knowledge, increased innovation and technology development across the ocean industries. Meeting places such as these are essential for ensuring the development and cooperation we need to reach climate targets towards 2030 and 2050, says Hege Økland, CEO in NCE Maritime CleanTech which is one of the initiators behind the event.

By connecting entrepreneurs, investors and industries THE OCEAN will contribute to the development of cooperation between national and international research and industry.

– We need an arena where the participants present their ideas and gather for powerful measures – where we show that we collectively take responsibility and commit to actions today and tomorrow. Join and make a difference, prompts Anders Haugland, Managing Director at VIS who is responsible for coordinating the initiative.
