Establishment of innovative network of quality within oil & gas education and training.
A partnership was established early on in 2012 between Vinnuháskúlin Centre of Maritime Studies and Engineering, Akureyri Comprehensive College, Greenland School of Minerals and Petroleum and Stavanger Offshore Technical College. The project was developed with the main goal of establishing an innovative network of quality within oil and gas education and training, while taking into account environmental and safety issues.
The overall aim of this project involving educational providers from the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and Norway is to place partners, who are new to the oil and gas industry, on an equal level of competitivity in the international market when it comes to their capacity to offer training and education in related specialized areas. Project FING has received approval for funding from NORA and Nordplus.
