NOC Workshops & Seminars

Working with the NOC – Workshops and Seminar

The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) will be showcasing how its cutting edge scientific research, technology development and world-class facilities can be used to underpin the global ocean industry by helping to solve the many challenges faced as our economies become increasingly reliant on our oceans.

Throughout the three days of Ocean Business, the NOC will be hosting workshops and seminars highlighting how the work of the NOC can help with such issues as the decommissioning of the 475 oil and gas installations in UK seas, enable developing nations to conduct scientific research in their oceans and coastlines in an affordable way to support their economies and conduct surveys of deep ocean installation sites prior to construction. As well as these workshop and seminar sessions the NOC will be opening its doors for tours of the key testing facilities that are available for commercial hire, so that visitors can speak with the teams that run these facilities and discuss the potential for their use.
