Global Marine Sustainability Workshop

20-22 September 2016, Scottish Association for Marine Science, Oban

The marine environment has the power to connect communities globally. In the spirit of connection, the University of the Highlands and Islands (UHI), the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS), Texas A&M University Corpus Christi (TAMU-CC) and its Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies are hosting a joint workshop to build on synergies across research from the Northern Seas and the Gulf of Mexico. This Global Marine Sustainability Workshop aims to drive research-based solutions, develop marine technology for commercialization, and educate a strong workforce in order to support marine and coastal sustainability.
