The offshore wind conference Science Meets Industry
Welcome to the annual offshore wind conference Science Meets Industry, 25 October in Bergen.
At Science Meets Industry Bergen academics and professionals from the business community and the public sector get together to exchange new knowledge and ideas.
The conference takes place in the University Aula (Universitetsaulaen), at Nygårdshøyden, in central Bergen.
Topic of 2022: Speed and volume
The topic of this year’s conference is the speed and volume of the offshore wind energy development in Norwegian waters.
We will discuss the processing of license applications for offshore wind power; is it possible to speed it up while retaining good practice? Several companies will present their plans and concepts for offshore wind development in Norway and internationally.
Research and education are critical to achieve profitable offshore wind projects in Norwegian waters, and the University of Bergen will display its research on wind and wave conditions in the Utsira Nord and Sørlige Nordsjø II.
Networking is an important part of the conference, and we encourage our participants to socialize during lunch and coffee breaks.
The conference is open to all and free of charge. Registration is mandatory.

Denmark has ambitious plans for utilizing its renewable energy sources by building energy islands in the North and Baltic Seas. What possibilities does this bring for the Norwegian supply chain in the offshore industries? In this session we will have a look at the comparative advantages in the Norwegian industry.
The session will be opened by Norway’s ambassador to Denmark, followed by interventions from Energinet and Green Ducklings. We invite you to join us for a networking reception after the session.
