The 2024 EOOS Technology Forum “Catching the momentum in ocean observing technology: optimising value and data provision” will take place on the 13 March 2024 at the Oceanology International, Excel, London (09:45-17:45 UTC).

To increase the value and sustainability of ocean observing platforms and systems, observers have turned their attention toward technologies that can deliver data from greater coverage at effective cost. The European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) is the infrastructure, platforms, sensors and people that gather the required data and information about Europe’s ocean, seas and coastal waters.

The 2024 EOOS Technology Forum will bring together technology developers, manufacturers and users to exchange knowledge on platforms and sensors of all types, costs and levels of technical sophistication with the goal to enhance accessibility of ocean observations. Key technological issues such as ease of maintenance, evolution and adaptation, ease of deployment and sustainability, will be discussed. The event will identify and promote emerging synergies in the technology community to advance the optimisation of ocean observing in Europe and worldwide.

The focus of this event will be on exploring the technologies and systems transforming the ongoing operations of critical marine observing infrastructure and initiatives, and discussing the innovation and practical steps that will be needed to expand capabilities in terms of value, return-on-investment and data provision while continuing to preserve functional cost-effectiveness and asset integrity. This event is open to all registered participants of Oceanology International.

This workshop is organised by EuroGOOS with the support of Jerico, Ifremer, OGS and SMHI, and DOOS.
