This month, we hosted a joint event with the Scottish Innovation Centre for Sensor and Imaging Systems (CENSIS) on the Internet of Things (IoT) going offshore, which explored the potential opportunities for the industry.
OGIC is proud to be sponsoring the Innovator Award at the 2018 Offshore Achievement Awards (OOA).
To encourage participation in the awards, OGIC, together with the OOA team, are hosting a ‘lunch and learn’ session for companies considering entering the awards.
Following the signing of three new projects, The Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) has reached its 40th project target ahead of schedule, with a total investment of over £1.3m in funding for collaborative projects with oil and gas companies and academic expertise in Scottish universities.
The risks and uncertainties associated with bringing a new technology to market are inherently high. There is significant financial investment required to research, develop, test, and commercialise a concept, and there is the ever-present concern that the concept or idea might not work.
The way in which the Oil and Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) works to help companies find appropriate research expertise in the university system in Scotland and to access funding for R&D presents a real opportunity to de-risk R&D.
