OCEAN BUSINESS APRIL 2017
Ocean Business is now firmly established as an unmissable international event for ocean technology, with almost 40% of visitors coming from abroad. Each Ocean Business show has seen a substantial increase in visitors with the last show in 2015, seeing a remarkable 29% increase in visitor numbers.
SENSOR DEVELOPMENT ROADMAP
During this session Prof Matt Mowlem, Head of NOC’s Ocean Technology and Engineering Group will be presenting NOC's Sensor & Instrumentation Development and future roadmap. The Ocean Technology and Engineering group at NOC develop sensor and instruments for environmental monitoring and engage industry in a variety of ways, including licensing technology and collaborative R&D projects. 2017 will be another key year, seeing NOC developed technologies made available commercially through partners and deployed on marine autonomous systems, landers, moorings and platforms for science. This presentation will highlight the group’s latest work and give a view on future direction.
DWINDLING FISH STOCKS - Food security is a major problem the world will have to face as the available land for to grow crops reduces in competition with land for housing, as the population expands. The situation is far from sustainable and a bubble that could burst. If and when the bubble bursts it will cause the deaths of millions of people, where additional farming will create more carbon dioxide to heat the climate, making more land barren in a vicious circle that as the responsible species we must take steps to prevent happening. More than 10% of the world (700,000,000 million people) rely on the ocean for food, but in addition to our poor land management record, we are also polluting the seven seas with plastic that is toxic - so reducing the number of fish that we might harvest for food.
SATELLITES & AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS
New for Ocean Business 2017, Diversified are delighted to announce that they are hosting two new events organised by the Marine South East and the Enterprise Europe Network and supported by the
European Commission that focus on defence and commercial applications in autonomous systems and satellite applications. Visitors can register for these FREE to attend events – a conference on Tuesday 4 April, 2017 and a B2B match making event on Wednesday 5 April 2017. Both events will be held alongside the Ocean Business exhibition and training forum that is being held at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton, UK, from 4-6 April.
2020 - 25 November 2013, Countdown to the launch of the
first Copernicus satellite.
European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani has
announced the launch of Sentinel-1A, the first satellite of
the EU Copernicus Programme that will fly in outer space.
On Wednesday 5 April 2017 the Enterprise Europe Network is organising a free B2B matchmaking event to give visitors the opportunity to meet potential business partners during pre-arranged 30 minute meetings. These will create real business development opportunities not only with exhibitors but also visitors, active in the maritime sector. This event will be of particular interest to those that are looking for new customers, partners or financiers for their company or those that are looking for ways to adapt their technology for dual-use applications.
