Renewing Norwegian Industry - SIRIUS

The oil price shock in 2014 has radically changed the outlook and challenges for Norwegian industry. We have to change the way we work so that the existing oil and gas clusters can maintain skills and competiveness. We also need to transfer the world-class skills and tools in the oil and gas sector to build new businesses in healthcare, environmental technology and high-technology. This workshop will explore how digitalisation and transformed work practices can bring about these changes.

We will present perspectives on how digitalisation can be made to work in industrial contexts and have an open discussion on how large industrial firms, SMEs and academics can work together to ensure that digitalisation delivers what it promises.

This workshop will also include the launch of the SIRIUS Innovation Forum. This forum aims to provide a meeting place for researchers and practitioners of digital industry. It is run by the SIRIUS Centre for Scalable Data Access in the Oil and Gas Domain.
