PLOCAN participated on behalf of the European project AtlantOS in Ocean Business 2019, the hands-on ocean technology exhibition and training forum, celebrated during the 9th, 10th and 11th April 2019 at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC), in Southampton, UK.
With over 5000 visitors from more than 65 countries and more than 360 international exhibitors, over 180 hours of training and demonstration workshops, a cutting edge conference ( Offshore Survey conference), industry led associated meetings, a careers event (Ocean Careers ) and innovative networking opportunities in the field of ocean technology, Ocean Business is an incredible global show offering the very latest technologies, water-based demonstrations, learning opportunities and high profile international associated industry events.
PLOCAN participated in this event on behalf of the European project AtlantOS which objective is to achieve a transition from a loosely-coordinated set of existing ocean observing activities to a sustainable, efficient, and fit-for-purpose Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System (IAOOS), by defining requirements and systems design, improving the readiness of observing networks and data systems, and engaging stakeholders around the Atlantic; and leaving a legacy and strengthened contribution to the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS). PLOCAN participated as an exhibitor in order to present some of the main results obtained during the project using graphics and audiovisuals.
The AtlantOS Project has received funding from the European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme by virtue of Grant Agreement nº 633211.
