Understanding the marine environment for a sustainable ocean economy (Research Festival 2020)

Wednesday 22 January 2020

Rolle 605, University of Plymouth


In preparation for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, and against a backdrop of significant forecasted increases in exploitation of ocean resources, the University of Plymouth Marine Institute is hosting this day-long event to bring together academics, industry and policymakers for a dialogue on the challenges facing the ocean economy, and the collaborative opportunities available to overcome them.

Researchers, and partners in the city, will share how Plymouth takes a whole-systems approach towards a sustainable ocean economy, from deep sea conservation to coastal defences to public perceptions. 

The workshop will showcase our expertise from understanding long-term environmental change to harnessing the oceans resources; innovative ocean data capture, to expert analysis of fundamental ocean processes.

It will also present the opportunity to participate in shaping the research strategy for the UK’s first National Marine Park in Plymouth Sound.

Dr James Fishwick, Head of Smart Sound Plymouth and Head of Technology and Operations for the Western Channel Observatory at Plymouth Marine Laboratory, will present 'Plymouth, a centre for the development and optimisation of future marine technology'
