We can’t wait for you to join us as we celebrate our eleventh annual conference! This cross-disciplinary online meeting brings together members of the global marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations.
This online event will bring together expert plenary speakers and contributed talks and e-posters outlining the latest research and management practices that address key topics related to marine science and management in the face of global climate change. You will also be able to enjoy networking with your peers and making new contacts, and connecting with a global and inclusive audience. Last year we welcomed over 500 attendees from 28 countries!
Plenary speakers include:
David Pratt & Drew Milne (Marine Scotland) & Prof Tavis Potts (University of Aberdeen) – Tackling climate change with offshore renewables: ambitions in Scotland
