A new DEMO2000 Call for proposal (call) will be presented in more detail at the NCE Subsea Meeting Forum 5 November.

- The budget for DEMO2000 has increased by 100 million Norwegian kroner. We plan to spend 90 million based on a new call with deadline 17 February 2016. The rest of the funding will be spent on extending current call for proposal with deadline October 14, says Anders J. Steensen, special advisor Research Council of Norway.

The subsea industry is suffering from reduced oil prices. Many companies struggle to get the chance to demonstrate the capability of their innovations. Getting track-record and showing the potential of new technology in real operations is key to succeed in the subsea sector.

- DEMO2000 is an excellent opportunity for companies in the strong Norwegian subsea cluster to demonstrate new technology, Steensen says.
