Aims of the Event

  • Increase trade and collaboration opportunities for the SW ocean economy
  • Increase productivity and reduce the environmental impact via the deployment of SW ocean tech to ORE (in particular potential buyers in Celtic Sea FLOW), Oil and Gas and Offshore, Fishing and Aquaculture, Defence, Regulators and clean marine and maritime.
  • The OTE will showcase the world-class ocean technologies and commercial opportunities from across the SW to buyers, collaborators and regulators from across the UK and beyond.
  • Technology focussed on: MAS, environmental data collection, geospatial data, data security, big data management and clean maritime.
  • To attract customers/collaborators and demonstrate the potential applications of such technologies to: ORE (in particular potential buyers in Celtic Sea FLOW), Oil and Gas and Offshore, Fishing and Aquaculture, Defence, and clean marine and maritime.
  • USP: the ability to provide pre-filmed and live in-sea demos via the Smart Sound that will be pre-recorded and presented in the main lecture theatres.
