Open to all, this will be an opportunity for end users of marine observation data to provide input to the managers of coastal observatories on the relevance and impact of different data sets to business activities. Marine environmental data is being generated by a large number of existing coastal observatories. Private sector companies can generate commercial products and services based on this data. This workshop is designed to present what data is currently available and learn from the business community and end users which data sets have most relevance and impact in the different business sectors of shipping, ports, metocean forecasting, defence, submarine cables, marine environmental monitoring, deep sea mining, aquaculture, oil and gas exploration and offshore renewable energy operations.
