The EOOS Technology Forum is a biennial event designed to help create and strengthen links between technology users, developers and providers in ocean observing across the public and private sectors from European countries.
This year’s workshop is organised by EuroGOOS with the support of Jerico, Ifremer, OGS and SMHI, and endorsed as an activity of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. It will take place at the Oceanology International on the 13 March 2024 (09:45-17:45 UTC).
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.
