  • With NOAA's predicted, real-time, and forecasted currents, people can safely dock and undock ships, maneuver them in confined waterways, and safely navigate through coastal waters. This helps to avoid ship collisions or delay the arrival of goods.

The workshop intends to raise awareness and to increase the understanding regarding the two "Blue Growth Focus Areas", i.e. "Biotechnology", "Marine mineral resources" and "Blue technology" according to the EU Communication "Blue Growth - opportunities for marine and maritime sustainable growth" from 13 September 2012.

15.30-15.40: Welcome Address
15.40-16.00: Blue Growth and the Law of the Sea
16.00-16.20: Blue Biotechnology and Intellectual Property Law 
16.20-16.40: Blue Growth and Marine Scientific Research
16.40-17.00: Q&A

The workshop is intended for:

  • students and professors, particularly from the programmes "Maritime Technologies" and "Integrated Safety and Security Management" at the University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven;
  • marine scientific community (marine biologists, marine geologists, marine engineers, etc.);
  • representatives of the maritime industries in Bremen and Bremerhaven as well as in the North-West of Germany;
  • representatives from politics and administration. 


The presentations are available as videos on our YouTube Channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/ISRIMde, however, in German only.
