Exploring innovation through collaboration and technology transfer between the energy, medicine and aerospace industries 

Since 2007 ExxonMobil, Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, University of Houston and more recently NASA, have collaborated on a Pumps & Pipes Symposium. This annual event brings together leading professionals and researchers in the energy, medicine, academic and aerospace industries, as well as venture capitalists, community leaders and equipment manufactures, to exchange ideas and explore crossover technologies -  www.pumpsandpipes.com

The Stavanger region has many similarities with the industries in Houston and has for many years had close contact with institutions in Houston. Technology and competence transfer is high on our regional agenda and there is a strong drive to explore how we can develop a platform to create opportunities to interact between the sectors and foster transfer of knowledge and technologies.

Pumps & Pipes in Houston has lunched the idea of creating a European Pumps & Pipes. In June, a first meeting will be held to learn more about the concept and to explore if a Stavanger model could be created as an “affiliated” Pumps & Pipes based on our own strengths within the energy, medical and academic sectors. 

Rustom K. Mody is Vice President/Chief Engineer at Baker Hughes and member of the Advisor Board of Pumps & Pipes. He will be in Stavanger on June 11th to share information on P&P and learn about regional actors that could be partners in a possible Norwegian P & P.
