The purpose of ONS Partnerships is to build longer term relationship with institutions that are world class within their area. This will help broaden the ONS network, strengthen the ONS programme, and contribute to regular activities and networking opportunities between the ONS main conferences.
Anne Ekern, Partnership Project Manager, says that ONS is working strategically on building partnerships and partnership activities primarily related to the following topics: Norwegian Continental Shelf, energy security, sustainability, new energy and technology.
– The ONS Foundation is selectively looking to partner with prominent institutions where a long-term relationship and collaborative events offer a win-win for both. As a partner with different organizations, ONS facilitates broader energy discussions by hosting events at different venues and on different topics, thereby also meeting new audiences. Our partners are invited to host events at our main conference in Stavanger, says Anne Ekern.
The ONS Foundation holds a strong global brand position within energy, and the strategy is to further strengthen this.
– We act as a platform for open discussions and would like to bring influencers together and take energy discussions to a new level, now also through select partnerships, says Ekern.
Within 2019, ONS will have hosted own and co-shared side events in Doha, Reykjavik, Abu Dhabi, Beijing, Oslo and Houston on topics such as Energy Innovation, Solar Energy, Arctic transportation routes and China and the global energy transition.
The ONS ambition is to host 12-15 partnership events running up to ONS 2020, contributing to new knowledge and ideas, speakers and audiences being brought back to the main event in Stavanger , 31 August – 3 September.
