The core mission of the SPE is best described using these two words; Network
& Knowledge. During the year, the SPE Bergen Section host a variety of activities.
Some are focused on knowledge, others on networking - but most focus on the combination
of the two.
SPE Bergen member meetings
The core of our activities are our member meetings
. We host 6-8 meetings every year. Through the SPE's Distinguished Lecturers Program
, we are able to offer you the very best technical presentations from all over
the world right here in Bergen. In addition to the DL, a local presentation is
offered on every meeting, giving the meetings a local touch. Local presentations
also gives you the possibility to get to know a little bit more about what is
moving on the peak of technological development right here in Bergen.
Member meetings starts with a social hour and ends with a dinner, nicely encapsulating
the technical content with excellent networking opportunities. Typically, the
meetings are visited by 30-60 people, including student members.
SPE Bergen One Day Seminar
The annual SPE Bergen One Day Seminar
is our largest event during the year. The international combined technical conference
and exhbition is held in Grieghallen, Bergen, every spring and is visited by roughly
The conference offers multiple full-day parallel sessions of technical presentations.
The exhibition covers some 2000 m2, and some 40 companies are represented with
exhibition stands. The event also features a Young Professionals session. The
seminar is unique in many ways. One of them is of course that it only spans one
day (hence the name) which makes the seminar very compact. Read more...
