Awarded Industrial PhD with the University of Oslo

Øystein Lande

Øystein Lande, our newest team member, has been awarded funding by the Research Council of Norway for his doctoral project under the Industrial PhD Scheme.

In his project, titled “Computational Fluid Dynamics Applied to Wave Energy Extraction in a Coastal Environment”, Øystein will focus on topics central to the further development of Ocean Oasis’ wave-powered desalination solution. He will pursue his PhD at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Oslo, with Professor Atle Jensen as supervisor together with Ocean Oasis’ CTO Dr. Thomas Berge Johannessen as company supervisor.

The Research Council has established the Industrial PhD Scheme to enhance research efforts and long-term competence-building in Norwegian trade and industry by recruiting doctoral candidates. The scheme also aims to foster closer collaboration between the business sector and research organizations, facilitating knowledge transfer from researchers to society at large.

We congratulate Øystein on his new position, which contributes to our mission of providing affordable and sustainable access to safe water for all.
