SeaFest 2017

6th July 2017

SeaFest 2017: Maritime Festival, Marine Trade Show, Digital Ocean Conference & Our Ocean Wealth Summit, was held in Galway, from 29th June to 2nd July 2017.

As a part of SeaFest 2017, our researchers Daniel Toal, Edin Omerdic, and Romano Capocci, attended a two-day Marine Trade Show, the Digital Ocean Conference and Our Ocean Wealth Summit at NUI Galway. The Marine Trade Show showcased some of the highly innovative products and services emerging from more than 60 companies and organisations across all sectors of the marine economy. The Digital Ocean – Ireland’s Marine Engineering and Technology Conference featured a selection of international marine technology companies, innovative Irish Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Ireland's technology and research centres, focusing on specific opportunities for technology innovations to drive the global blue economy. Our Ocean Wealth Summit forms a key part of the Government’s integrated plan for Ireland’s marine sector, Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth, and brings together world renowned speakers, industry experts, business development agencies and the Irish business and marine research community for focused discussions on this year’s theme of ‘Rethinking Boundaries and Innovation for a Sustainable Marine Economy’.

In addition to discussing our ongoing research activities and possible future collaborations, we have been inviting participants to register their institutions to the EXCELLABUST Marine Robotics Database.

EMRA 2017

22nd May 2017

The 4th edition of the EMRA Workshop took place in Girona, 15th - 16th of May 2017. The EMRA 2017 was organised by University of Girona, Spain, under EU projects EXCELLABUST and STRONGMAR. It covered topics on marine robotics and its applications, and brought together a diverse range of speakers, from ongoing FP7/H2020 projects, industry, end users and stakeholders.

EMRA 2017 provided an excellent opportunity for networking, as it brought together academia and industry representatives from all around Europe. The interdisciplinary approach, presenting marine robotics and all its different applications was especially worthwhile for the exchange of ideas and the future development of marine robotics.

The next EMRA 2018 will be hosted by the MMRRC at the University of Limerick in Summer 2018. Dates and details will be posted on this site soon.
