Dialogues with Industry series begins Sept. 14

How can industry, science and government together advance ocean observing for 2030?

Join the ocean observing community in a series of roundtable style “Dialogues with Industry” to highlight opportunities for the public and private sectors to work in partnership to advance the ocean observing enterprise for 2030. This series is a recognized Ocean Decade event and a NOAA New Blue Economy initiative hosted by GOOS, the Marine Technology Society, and NOAA Research. GOMO’s Brittany Croll is one of four members on the executive planning team for this initiative.

Dialogues with Industry will aim to dismantle barriers and highlight opportunities towards achieving a mature, vibrant ocean observing enterprise. The intended outcome is actionable recommendations on how the commercial, government, and scientific sectors can deploy the next generation Global Ocean Observing System to meet the needs of the Blue Economy. A final synthesis paper will outline the results of this series and the actionable recommendations.

Up to 25 participants are invited to sit at the table for a virtual, facilitated conversation, as well as up to 100 “observers” who can chat throughout the dialogue. The last 45-60 minutes of each session will be opened up for live conversations with all of the observers.

All of the dialogues will take place from 14:00 – 17:00 GMT (9:00am – 12:00pm EST):
Dialogue One: September 14, 2022 – Instrument Provision: Supply and development of sensors and platforms
