Smart Ocean Forum 2013

Last week Ciara McQuillan and Paul Farrell attended the SmartOcean Forum 2013 which took place at Titanic Belfast on 5 th & 6th of November. The purpose of this all-island event was to highlight the potential of our ocean resources to support shared opportunities in delivering hi-tech products and services to global marine markets.

The forum was extremely interesting and showcased an array of industry speakers as well as an industry workshop, poster presentations and an exhibition. It addressed key areas such as blue growth, marine data and knowledge, renewable energy and ocean observation and discussed recent developments such as the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation, the launch of the EU’s Atlantic Strategy Action Plan and the launch of Horizon 2020 in 2014.
