The future of observations from seabed to space: Training to support marine science

EMB will be hosting a 2-hour workshop on "The future of observations from seabed to space: Training to support marine science" during Sea Tech Week 2020.

For more than 20 years in Brest (France), Sea Tech Week® has forged and strengthened international collaboration and business in marine science and technology. The virtual Sea Tech Week® will continue to be a cross-disciplinary platform bringing together researchers, businesses, representative from institutions and students. The virtual Sea Tech Week® is organised by the Campus mondial de la mer community (Bretagne, France), which will share its expertise in marine research and innovation. The core theme of the 12th edition will be: “Marine observation: From seabed to space”.

The EMB workshop will be held online on Monday 12 October from 13:30 – 15:30 CEST. This workshop will focus on the training and capacity needs for the future of marine science, with specific focus on what is needed for observation. It will highlight current and new professional specialisms that are needed to sustain the future of ocean observations. The workshop will feature short presentations on related topics from a panel of experts. The workshop will also allow significant interaction from the participants, with opportunities for questions and discussion with the panel and other participants. The workshop will enable different stakeholder groups to discuss opportunities for delivering the required training and capacity development, and how these opportunities can be actively taken forward. Participants will learn about training needs in relation to a number of topics relevant to marine science and ocean observations, and more about the potential roles for their sector in supporting or enabling this training and capacity development.
