University delighted with ‘best ever’ Offshore Europe

This year’s Offshore Europe has been the best ever for the University of Aberdeen, with the team at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre engaging with hundreds of visitors from business, government and agencies over the four-day show.

Organisers hailed this year’s event a great success, with attendance of over 60,000, compared  to 48,000 in 2011.

University Principal Professor Sir Ian Diamond paid tribute to the work of his team, saying:  “This has been a tremendous week which has further established the University as a key player in the energy industry and in addressing the challenges it faces.

“Our experts in training, careers, research and innovation have done non-stop business, developed existing relationships and made many new ones, and have many exciting opportunities to follow up. In addition to hundreds of enquiries on career development and training we have discussed new research collaborations and received much interest in our spin-out companies which are commercialising clever ideas from University researchers.”
