Subsea companies have been urged to turn to the re-launched NSRI (National Subsea Research Initiative).
The NSRI is aiming to bring academia and industry together to collaborate on getting technology to market much more quickly.
The organisation launched the key area on which it will be focusing news subsea R&D at the Subsea Expo this week.
Key themes include well intervention, life of field assurance and simulation and modelling.
Dr Gordon Drummond, project director at NSRI, spoke to Energy Voice about what companies should be doing in the current climate and how companies could get involved with the organisation.
