Launched in 2019, a new program helping organizations sharing major technology challenges form new collaboration partnerships, likely across technology sectors.  The TCC will facilitate formation of the partnership, and then help the partnership build momentum towards solving the technology problems and bringing the solutions to market.  The details of this program are under development by the Collaboration Committee formed by the TCC’s Board of Directors.

2020 plans for this program will be developed by the TCC Board and member Advisory Council and will be announced by February 2020.

If your organization has major technology challenges, shared with other organizations, and you’re interested in forming a partnership to work together on solving these challenges and bringing the solutions to market, possibly across multiple technology sectors or industries, then contact the TCC for the current status of this program and get involved in the selection of the first pilot projects.

The TCC is planning to explore strategic challenges in the following areas:

  • Autonomous rig/rig of the future – technologies supporting future oil rigs or platforms, which may also apply to challenges in other industries
  • Imaging - improving the collection, storage and processing of image data
  • Resilient/renewable energy – challenges for the next step in evolution of energy and power systems
  • Water quality & purification – challenges faced by many technology sectors and industries related to quality of water supplies and improvements in purification

On October 23, 2019, the TCC held the first workshop that included strategic challenge sessions.  During this workshop 28 areas of potential collaboration were identified.  For a list of the potential collaboration areas, click here.
