The University of Aberdeen exhibited at the SPE Offshore Europe conference held at the P&J Live in Aberdeen from 5th-8th September. The theme for this year’s conference was ‘accelerating the transition to a better energy future' and we were there to showcase our world-leading research as part of the main conference programme with expert sessions on digitalisation and AI, critical materials, late-life assets, hydrogen storage and offshore wind.
In addition to the main conference programme, we hosted a series of short lunchtime talks on the University of Aberdeen stand (2E68) that were open to all attendees and covered a wide range of topics related to energy transition as well as upskilling opportunities. See below for further details.
The National Decommissioning Centre also exhibited in the Innovation and Digital Zone and hosted an evening panel session on ‘Energy Integration: Competition, Consensus and Collaboration’ at its facility in Newburgh.
Staff and Postgraduate students from the School of Engineering will be presenting their research projects as part of Offshore Europe's Technical Programme. All sessions are open to all conference attendees.

The University will showcase its energy-related research at Offshore Europe, including in areas such as offshore wind, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, and data and AI. As well as highlighting the importance of equipping the workforce of the future with essential skills.
In this episode of ‘Into the Headlines’ Laura Grant finds out about what impact the past 50 years of North Sea exploration have had – and what the next 50 might hold.
As we prepare to exhibit at Offshore Europe, Professor John Underhill, Director of our Centre for Energy Transition, highlights the key role that universities play in providing the skills that will drive the energy transition.
As momentum builds for Offshore Europe 23 it is an opportunity to reflect on what has been achieved and the direction of travel for future years. Professor Richard Neilson gives an update on how the NDC is supporting the energy sector.
