£1m funding to boost oil and gas innovation

The Industry Technology Facilitator (ITF) and Oil & Gas Innovation Centre (OGIC) has £1m available to fund and support companies with projects requiring research and development to be undertaken at a Scottish University. The support could reduce costs, raise production efficiency, and improve safety and environmental performance.

Ben Foreman, ITF Technology Manager, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for technology developers to progress their ideas from the desktop towards the marketplace. The oil and gas industry has undergone tremendous changes over the past few years and new technology is crucial to see it become more efficient, sustainable and safer in the future.”

The closing date for applications is 30th April 2017. For more information follow the link
