Annual Report 2015
Norwegian Research Centre for Offshore Wind Technology
The Board is the operative decision-making body for the execution of the activities within the Centre. It
consists of eleven members whereof eight are representatives of the industry partners and three are from
the research partners. The board reports to and is accountable to the General Assembly (GA). The Board
monitors the implementation of the Centre and approves the annual working plans and budgets. It also
oversees that the activities described in the annual working plans are completed within the defined time
frame, hereunder that the in-kind contributions are delivered as specified.
Two ordinary Board meetings were held in 2015; in June in Oslo hosted by DNV-GL and in December in
Trondheim at the new SINTEF Energy Lab. Both meetings were combined with a workshop the day before.
The December workshop presented results from the work packages and was combined with the annual GA
meeting. Both board meetings had innovations and strategy for development of NOWITECH on the agenda.
The December meeting approved the proposed budget and work plans for 2016.
