Open Innovation Programme
Our Open Innovation Programme is YOUR opportunity to get involved in unlocking the full potential of the UK North Sea.
Our Open Innovation Programme brings us all together via technology showcases, Tech20 events and workshops that inspire new thinking. The 'Call for Ideas' process is a key part of the Open Innovation Programme. Let’s look at how it works.
Call for Ideas
Our Call for Ideas initiative seeks to identify, fund and support innovative ideas and concepts from inside and outside the oil and gas industry. The Calls focus on a range of themes that have been identified by the Centre, its members and wider industry stakeholders.
