THE OCEAN concludes with insight and knowledge sharing
THE OCEAN 2021 concluded with a wealth of insight and knowledge presented by and discussed among renown experts from the ocean industries. Throughout this two-day conference, leading minds and renown authorities from many ocean-based firms and institutions shared their insights on the current state and future trends of the ocean industries. The theme for Day 1 of the conference focused on “Ocean Wealth” and “New Value Creation”. Key speakers from educational, financial, and other institutions spoke on the economic perspective towards sustainability within the ocean industries. Day 2 revolved around “Ocean Health” and “Ocean Knowledge”. Sustainable food cultivation, energy transition and data-driven ocean research were among the topics discussed. A highlight of the conference was the on-site podcast that was present. Conference partner PwC interviewed attendees with key industry knowledge. THE OCEAN is an arena for new discoveries, connections and collaborations across ocean industries and academia for the sustainable use of the oceans. For the first time ever, THE OCEAN was a hybrid event, held at Bergen’s Grieghallen for a limited capacity while simultaneously live-streamed.
