After being officially recognised by the global economic competitiveness cluster Pôle Mer Bretagne on the 24th of February 2012 in the framework of a consortium bringing together SailingOne (France), SubCtech (Germany), IFREMER and Météo-France (France), the OceanoScientific® Programme attended from the 13th to 15th of March the biannual global ocean forum Oceanology International 2012 (oi12) in London.
At the occasion of this event with global relevance 7.000 professionals from more than 70 countries shared knowledge and connected with the marine technology and ocean science community, improving their strategies for measuring, exploiting, protecting and operating in the world’s oceans.
The Ocean Observation and Forecasting session of the conference covered all aspects of ocean observation and monitoring using remote sensing and in-situ technologies as well as tools and techniques for ocean forecasting.
The OceanoScientific® Programme was presented several times by Martin Kramp, the responsible engineer at SailingOne, on the French stand of Pôle Mer Bretagne and on the stand of its industrial partner SubCtech.
It was also the perfect opportunity to continue discussing with major international companies involved in scientific cooperation programs. The debate had started at the Kick-Off meeting of the Smart Ocean - Smart Industries initiative launched by the World Ocean Council (WOC) in Paris at the headquarters of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO in December 2011.
