The Drones are coming

Rogaland is evolving as a drone region. Whilst local drone operators are winning large contracts locally and internationally, the region is working towards becoming Norway’s competence centre for flying drones.

Both Lyse and SUS are involved in large research projects related to the use of drones, and Europe’s largest drone with space for two passengers is already in place here.

During the past three years the commercial use of drones has increased from approximately 200 to over 6300. Numbers from the Civil Aviation Authority show that close to 1000 belong here in Rogaland. Several leading drone operators – Nordic Unmanned, KVS Technologies, Norse Asset Solutions and Snow Vision – are already established in the Stavanger Region.

  • The Best of 2019: Books to Read for Self Improvement, Self Curiosity and Self Reflection

    08. May 2019

    The past few years have seen more and more stressed out, burnt out, and struggling people turn to celebrities and psychologists for direction leading to record sales of self-help books. The cynics amongst us might groan internally at this news, although I suspect that many do not have a true understanding of what ‘self help’ constitutes or what it can offer. I myself prefer the term self curiosity or self reflection, rather than self help. It opens up my mind to possibilities rather than closing it down at the expectation of pop-psychology and quick, but short lived, “fixes”.
