Preliminary program plan and link to the new website can be downloaded from the menu on the right.
The PETROMAKS programme model for funding of research has functioned well and triggered extensive support from trade and industry. The model has helped to bring Norwegian petroleum-related research and industry up to the international cutting edge.
According to two external evaluations, the Research Council of Norway’s large-scale Programme PETROMAKS has achieved its objectives. Its successor, the soon-to-be-launched PETROMAKS 2 programme, will build on the best from the preceding programme while further refining the thematic areas of research.
