Integrated Monitoring is combining models, sensors and big data/advanced data analysis and data fusion. This is a key project for GCE Subsea to enable better, safer and more cost efficient solutions through increased integration, automation and digitalisation.

New Innovation Centre

GCE Subsea has ambitions to be awarded status as Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) within Integrated Monitoring. This workshop will also be used to get input to the scope and object of such a centre. The objective is to strengthen the cluster companies innovation by focusing on long-term research in close collaborating between research-intensive enterprises and leading research groups.

Innovation Challenge

The event will feature leading authorities on the topics, as well as workshop and dialog to identify the main challenges and opportunities facing the industry.

The results from the workshop will be summarised and posted as an innovation challenge by GCE Subsea, where the best ideas will be supported with pre-project funding.

We will give presentations and workshop sessions for:

  • Overall challenges and needs
  • Smarter sensors and observation methodology
  • Data analysis, integration, BigData
