Manuel Ruiz de la Rosa, CEO of Marine Park, a collaborative space for the innovation and development of solutions for the marine environment, gave a talk entitled “Marine Park, a Space for Marine Innovation“ on Thursday 15th September, in the conference room of the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands in Taliarte. The seminar highlighted the potential of Marine Park as a place where, through the generation of ideas and sharing of resources, innovative solutions can be found.

The Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) announces the 7th edition of the Glider School, the renowned hands-on training forum on ocean-glider technology, which will be held as usual in Gran Canaria, Spain, during the second week of November.

The educational contents of the Glider School will cover both hardware and software aspects using specialised theoretical and practical sessions in the classroom, the laboratory and in open water. Using real ocean gliders of various types (Waveglider, Slocum, Seaglider and Seaexplorer), the course will focus on the features of each ocean glider technology, its capabilities and applications.

This highly specialised training week represents a great opportunity for students and professionals worldwide to learn about the main commercial ocean-glider technologies, with direct teaching support from leading manufacturers of ocean gliders, sensors and other modules that integrate with these state-of-the-art, unmanned ocean observation platforms.
