A workshop was organised as part of a week of events for Seatech 2016. Aimed at small and medium-sized businesses that develop innovative applications using marine data, the workshop was entitled: “From publicly available resources to innovation in the blue economy”.
The workshop, held from 11 to 12 October, was jointly organised by EUROGOOs (European Global Ocean Observing System) and EMODnet (European Marine Observation and Data Network) in partnership with PLOCAN, SmartBayIreland and Marine South East, as one of the activities of the COLUMBUS European Union H2020 project, and as part of the conference “A Connected Ocean”.
In September 2017, the headquarters of PLOCAN will host the final general assembly of NeXOS, a European project that is co-ordinated by PLOCAN. The primary objective of NeXOS is to develop a system of sensors that are low cost, multifunctional, innovative and compact, and that can be integrated into fixed and mobile ocean observation platforms, as well as to develop services for the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the MSFD directive (Good Environmental Status (GES) of European marine waters) and the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).
The decision that PLOCAN would host the NeXOS general assembly was taken at the seventh meeting of the project steering committee, held from 4-7th October in the premises of Ifremer, in La Seyne-sur-Mer, which was attended by more than 40 representatives from the multidisciplinary consortium comprising 21 partner institutions and businesses with direct links to technological development and innovation in the marine and maritime sectors.
Ida Stier, CEO of Stier Group, a business providing services and training in the maritime sector, will give the talk “Crisis vs change: training and opportunities” on Thursday 20th October, in the conference room of the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands in Taliarte. The seminar will cover training and professional development opportunities in the maritime sector.
Ida Stier founded the business Stier&Co in the Canary Islands 22 years ago and the Centro de Estudios Marítimos del Atlántico (CEMA) 20 years ago, which have subsequently merged to form Grupo Stier. Additionally, Ida has been the provincial director of the company Mapfre for 4 years and the managing director of the business Iberpandi. Last year she was awarded the status of adoptive daughter of the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria in recognition of her work in internationalisation.
The United Kingdom National Oceanographic Institute (NOC) hosted the seventh biannual EGO (Everyone’s Gliding Observatories) conference this week, 26th – 29th, in its head offices in Southampton, attracting over one hundred and fifty representatives of the international community of scientists and technicians that use glider technology, along with the main companies of the industry who have supported the organisation of the event through sponsorship in co-operation with the European AtlantOS-H2020 project.
