The oceans are endangered. Within just a few decades, the sea has been forecasted to hold more plastic than fish. In the fishing industry, only one third of all caught fish end up as food on our plates. And emissions from ships and toxic antifouling paints are a threat to marine life.
But the tide can be turned around, ensuring that the oceans remain a viable and sustainable resource for humanity in the future.
Join us, as we during two days plunge into Chalmers’ marine and maritime research along with a taste of the research performed by some of our close collaborators. Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to international, as well as local, researchers who will share how the sea can give us fresh healthy foods and new materials, how autonomous ships on blue fuels will take us across plastic-free oceans and what is necessary to know about rising sea levels for future urban planning.
