The consortium shall be an industry govern R&D centre.
We want to establish an efficient management and governance structure to assure the R&D and innovation production. The objective is to assure an industry govern JIP with active industry participation in the board, technical committee (TC) and the company experts sub committees.
The six R&D partners have during the last two years established a unique cooperation and cooperative culture on this project. We have had several internal workshops in Trondheim, Stavanger and Halden to develop the program and we have had many joint industry meetings including two major industry workshop spring 2013. This will assure an efficient project organization across the six R&D partners. The project has top management attention and support from all six partners.
The R&D partners have very good experiences from running similar joint collaborative environments. We are going to draw on the best learning from these others centers and JIPs.
