This event will be of particular interest to those working in Marine Science.
You are invited to become involved at the start of this project between businesses and global-leaders in research from the US and Europe – a joint venture in the commercialisation of research and innovation between The Scottish Association of Marine Science (SAMS) and the University of the Highlands and Islands – and The Harte Research Institute, Texas A&M University Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) and the expertise of its business partners and supply chains from around the Gulf of Mexico. The purpose of this venture is to build connections across the whole spectrum of Marine Science, with the focus this September being on emerging technologies in aquaculture, and innovative and advanced remote sensing capabilities and data science, through the integration of unmanned aircraft system, unmanned underwater vehicles, and remotely operated vehicles (UASs, UUVs and ROVs).
TAMU-CC and Scotland’s University of The Highlands and Islands (UHI) are each recognised as transformative institutions and with their existing networks of federal/government agencies and industry connections, are actively building synergies from research of the Arctic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico to drive science-based solutions, develop and commercialise technologies and educate a strong workforce to ensure marine and coastal sustainability. We expect the workshop will be attended by around 100 high level opinion formers and policy makers from the sector, opening up the associated exhibition to the wider marine supply chain to secure additional commercial opportunities.
Organisations registering for the workshop will be able to have a stand to promote their capabilities and expertise.
Date: 19th – 22nd September 2016
