When oil and gas was discovered in the North Sea, the need for a meeting place for the companies in this new industry emerged. ONS was short for Offshore North Sea, as the event was targeted at companies with business in the North Sea basin. Today, the event attracts visitors from all over the world, and is known as just ONS.
For decades the ONS Foundation has developed an international network with representatives from industry, authorities, academia and research institutions. The foundation has several working committees represented by more than 150 leaders from industry and politics. The committees advise and shape the programme and direction of our work.
The ONS Foundation partners with prominent organisations to facilitate global events and network meetings. The goal is to exchange ideas, learn and build relationships between industry, government and society.
The ONS Foundation is a non-profit organisation. We are proud and grateful to be under the patronage of HM King Harald of Norway. The royal patronage encourages us to strive harder to achieve our goal of being an invaluable catalyst within the energy community.
