Accelerating deep sea exploration
19. April 2023, 08:30 - 16:00
VilVite Auditoriet, 2 etg., Thormøhlensgate 51, Bergen Norway
Event registration is closed.
Join our seminar on how to accelerate the exploration of the deep sea environment and its minerals resources. The ongoing opening process and impact assessment for seabed minerals activity in Norway will be basis for the discussion.
There is a broad consensus that more knowledge is needed about the deep sea environment and its mineral resources, but different views on how to move forward.
We will discuss how we can work together to strengthen the knowledge basis and what it will take to succeed.
Different stakeholders will be invited to present and discuss the challenges and opportunities arising with this emerging industry.
How does the roadmap ahead look like, what are the key actions needed and what joint projects should be established to move forward.
Keywords for the discussion are legal status, environmental aspects, resource potential and areas of collaboration within deep sea minerals.
The goal is to share knowledge and foster innovation to accelerate deep sea exploration and strengthen the knowledge basis.
