Marine Institute - Ocean Innovation Conference

The School of Ocean Technology organizes an annual gathering of the oceans community in Canada called ‘Ocean Innovation'.

The Ocean Innovation series strives to introduce relevant and often provocative topics centered around the latest innovations in the areas of maritime safety, efficiency of operations and sustainable ocean management, while at the same time maintaining a focus on uniting all segments of the oceans community - public, private and academic.

With growing international interest and involvement, Ocean Innovation is proving its worth in helping to raise the profile of Canadian expertise, innovation and sound ocean stewardship.

Ocean Innovation 2014 (OI) will take a significantly different form for 2014. Taking place in St. John’s, NL in conjunction with Oceans '14 MTS/IEEE, September 14 – 19 the 12th installment of Ocean Innovation will focus on a number of targeted initiatives around the theme ‘Youth and the Oceans’. Three separate, but related initiatives are planned to take place: An Oceans’14 dedicated session for educators, an Oceans’14 Speaker Series (taking place across the Province of Newfoundland), and an Ocean Innovation Youth Fair.
