A Centre for Research-based Innovation

Sustainable Arctic Marine and Coastal Technology (SAMCoT)



SAMCoT Arctic HSE and Technical Workshops

In September SAMCoT will host again two workshops for its partners
and other participants interested in Arctic Research.

During the SAMCoT Technical Workshop the Strategic Direction of the
Centre is discussed and reviewed. During 2015 the Centre will undergo
the Midway Evaluation by the Research Council of Norway and this
workshop will help the Centre to be fine tuned for such exercise.

See: SAMCoT Technical Workshop Programme

Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) in the Arctic is a key element for our Centre as it is a crucial item in all our research activities. The knowledge that SAMCoT has acquired on Arctic HSE makes our centre a leading expert. This workshop is intended to share this knowledge and create an internal active discussion forum on Arctic HSE issues related to research activities for the Centre.
