As a part of being awarded GCE status, a new GCE partner agreement has been developed by and between the partners of the cluster.
A working group consisting of four board members and the CEO, have in collaboration with the board and the partners, developed the new partner agreement. The new agreement runs for the GCE 5 + 5-year period.
“I am very pleased to announce that a new GCE Subsea partner agreement has been signed by the partners of the cluster,” says Owe Hagesæther. “The new agreement is an industry and R&D fundament for our cluster.”
As in the former NCE Subsea partner agreement, the GCE partner agreement also consists of three different partner segments: Industry Partners; R&D Institutions and Academia and Governmental Industry Developers.
The agreement will see GCE Subsea arrange an annual partner forum to discuss and decide upon strategic directions and future cluster development.
