The programme for the MOST symposium, organized by KIVI Offshore Technology and MarTec, has been published online.
The first activity will start at 09:30, however it is recommended to arrive earlier for visitor registration. Activities throughout the day are grouped into blocks by theme:
• Introduction & presentation of Jubilee Book
• Subsurface developments
• Surface developments
• Offshore Wind
• Future of the North Sea
• 50 Years offshore
During these blocks, some exciting events will take place alongside a selection of inspirational presentations. For example: the Jubilee Book “50 years KIVI Offshore Technology” will be presented during the first block. This book, which will be handed out to all visitors of the symposium, marks the development of Offshore Technology in the Netherlands. More information on the book can be found here: https://www.kivi.nl/afdelingen/offshore-techniek/kivi-offshore-technology-book
Additionally, prizes will be awarded for the best graduation theses of both HBO and University students who completed their studies in 2018 in an offshore-related topic. The Award Ceremony for best Master/HBO thesis in Offshore Engineering serves as a challenge and opportunity for the next generation of graduation students to perform a high quality graduation thesis to win this prestigious award.
