The Role of Research and Technology in the Changing Ocean Economy

Project Scope:

An ad hoc planning committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will organize a public workshop to consider the role of research and technology within the changing global ocean economy. The workshop will explore emerging transformations in coastal and marine industries, in regard to both mounting environmental challenges and significant advances in technology across multiple disciplines, including artificial intelligence, robotics, sensor platforms, and genomics. Opportunities and challenges to advancing U.S. leadership in the global ocean economy will be discussed, and priorities for multi-sectoral approaches and cross-sector collaboration and coordination between government, universities, and industry will be considered throughout the workshop. A brief rapporteur-authored workshop proceedings will be published.
