Future Ocean at the trade fair Oceanology International in London
The Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean" takes part in 2016 for the 4th time with a booth at the OI Oceanology International in London. From 15 -17 March more than 500 exhibitors present their new products and services from all areas of marine technology within this world largest exhibition for marine technology. In addition to the conference research and naval ships can be visited again this year.
The Cluster of Excellence presents together with the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel on the North German joint stand organized by the WTSH, Business Development and Technology Transfer Corporation Schleswig-Holstein GmbH. The focus of the Cluster this year is the Knowledge transfer and the Knowledge Exchange. We would like to draw attention to the unique knowledge pool generated in the cluster of more than 200 interdisciplinary scientists. Through integration of politics, economy and society transdisciplinary should be strengthened within the cluster; debates and dialogue platforms are initiated. Everyone is invited joining us in this challenge, we are happy seeing you at our booth F200.
The six "beacon projects" (Cluster of Excellence "Future Ocean", Research and Technology Centre (FTZ), Society/ Association for Marine Aquaculture Ltd GMA, the Kiel Active Ingredient Center KiWiZ, the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Marine Biotechnology EMB and the Research and Development Center Kiel FH GmbH) are being supported within the framework of the Schleswig-Holstein initiative "Sea our Future" to strengthen the maritime profile of the state. To better use the synergies between these projects reciprocal introductions were carried out in 2009.
The Technology and Knowledge Transfer area of the Cluster, which is active at the intersection between science and industry, organised these events. The meetings included a short presentation of the institute after which current fields of research were illuminated by the presentation of a selected doctoral thesis followed by a visit at the institute. This series began with the presentation of the Cluster of Excellence "Future Ocean" and a visit on the research vessel Alkor.
