INNOVATETHENATION is VisitScotland's new initiative that will bring together experts, influencers and the next generation of innovators in a series of engaging talks throughout the country.
INNOVATEMARINE on the 29th September 2016 cover's Scotland's growing marine sector, the future of research, the threats posed to the marine environment and how the leaders of the future are being secured.
You will be engaged by Dr Raeanne Miller, NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellow for Wave and Tidal Energy at the Scottish Association for Marine Science in Oban and is the only Scot to have been selected for the Australian-led Homeward Bound Antarctic expedition in November. The Homeward Bound Project aims to enhance the influence and impact of Woman in Science to ensure the sustainability of the planet and support the take up and stay in of leadership roles.
Joining Dr Miller is Professor Vincent Janik, Director of the Scottish Oceans Institute at the University of St. Andrews. Professor Janik will talk about the work of the institute which studies the marine environment from deep sea oceans to the coasts, the people who use and interact with the sea and the biological and physical processes that make the oceans functions. He will also tell of the plans of the exciting, new, £10m marine laboratory planned for St. Andrews University which will cement Scotland’s reputation as a world leader in research and species protection.
Registration is FREE and includes arrival tea & coffee followed by a drinks reception after the talks to take the conversation further.
