Discover The Possibilities: Into the Blue Conference 2019

The North East is part of a rapidly growing and thriving UK space industry with companies capitalising on the exciting opportunities available.

A major satellite applications conference, attracting industry leaders from across the UK, will showcase some of the many uses for satellite applications and how businesses can tap into these excellent opportunities.

This conference will be looking at the Foresight report on the Future of the Sea and responding to the challenges and recommendations set out. We will be addressing the following topics:

  • The ocean economy context
  • Using the sea for resources (food, energy)
  • Using the sea for trade and travel (global trade, human movement, connected ports and connected shipping, illegal shipping)
  • Saving the sea (pollution, marine biodiversity, warming)
  • Protecting us from the sea (sea level rise, coastal observation and coastal communities economies)
  • Deep sea (sea blindness, exploration for resources)
