Oceans of Knowledge: Ocean observations and emerging technologies enabling the blue economy

57 IMarEST

Wednesday 20 November 2019 | 0900-1700
The Royal Institution| 21 Albemarle Street| London

The Oceans of Knowledge conference series considers the operational use of ocean observations and technologies. Now in its third edition, the 2019 conference will focus on the specific role of ocean observations in identifying and mitigating future risks to ocean uses and facilitating a sustainable blue economy. The conference will be opened by a keynote presentation from the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Ocean Economy Group. This keynote will summarise recent OECD work on understanding the future ocean economy and its dependence on ocean observations.

Subsequent morning presentations will take a closer look at a range of high growth ocean uses such as:

  • Autonomous shipping
  • Open water aquaculture
  • Marine mining
  • Offshore wind

The afternoon will then explore the future direction of technologies which will play a key role in enabling future sustainable ocean use:

  • Communication at sea
  • Advanced sensors
  • Earth observation
  • Expert systems and machine learning
  • Robotics and automation

Each session will also include a panel discussion to further expand on the topics raised and offer the opportunity for delegates to engage with speakers. Dedicated networking sessions will also be held throughout the day.

Why attend?

Oceans of Knowledge has an interdisciplinary focus and will be of interest to representatives from industry, academia and government. Particular benefits are anticipated for technology and service providers wishing to understand their future markets. By incorporating a mixed programme with both a conference and workshop style, this event will provide a unique opportunity to debate how ocean observations can best support future sustainable ocean use.
