CIAM, with the aim of creating values by being smarter together for competitive performance, takes an integrated multi-disciplinary approach to challenge conventional knowledge and lack of collaboration when focusing on areas such as operations and maintenance, life cycle cost and economics, industrial services and supply chain management, technical integrity and risk management, to mention some.
This is done through national and international collaborative networks and professional forums for information- and knowledge exchange, cooperative projects, R&D and education.
CIAM is a cooperative arrangement between the Faculty of Science and Technology at University of Stavanger (UiS) and industrial members in Norway.
Administration and day to day management of CIAM are financed through membership fees, while special projects are financed by involved partners and other external resources. The activities are performed on a non-profit basis.
