An expert discussion on monitoring and sustainable use of the oceans:
What innovative maritime technologies for monitoring the oceans and detecting changes in the oceans are available today and what is still needed in order to better understand the processes of the climate change and act accordingly? It will be also discussed how digitalization and the digital ocean can be utilized in combination with international cooperation in order to reach our climate targets.
Energy from the oceans is still a technology challenge, what solutions are possible and how would this affect our sensitive ecosystems? Also decommissioning of the existing huge offshore installations will become a very important task for the next decades and needs to be done as environmentally sensitive as possible.
