Adapting to the Digital Future: The subsea industry in 20 Years (SOLD OUT)

01 November, 2018



A step change in innovation which surrounds networked technologies is now evident in almost every facet of human marine engagement. However, as the industry focuses on a digital reformation to enable a safer, smarter operating environment, how do we keep pace? Issues such as: security, ‘re-skilling’ of the current workforce and the evolution of regulatory policy and current work practices require consideration as we move toward a digital future.
