9–11 October 2018 The 11th edition of Sea Tech Week

Brest, France

The 11th edition of Sea Tech Week – the international marine science and technology event – is preparing to welcome participants from 9th to 11th October 2018 at Le Quartz Conference Centre in Brest, France.

Sea Tech Week represents not only over one thousand participants, researchers, industrialists and decision-makers but also a unique opportunity to develop business relationships at face-to-face meetings with specifiers, customers, leads and prospective partners.

For 2018, the event has a new theme: marine bioresources, covering a broad sweep from resource characterisation and production to economic development (extraction, bioprocessing, etc.). Also featured are associated presentations and conferences on robotics, wave modelling, etc. The objective: to spotlight all the latest technologies on offer in these different fields of application.

Discover a fresh look to the event’s organisation and a more integrated programme that places the exhibition at its heart, featuring coffee breaks and opening reception held in the exhibition spaces to ensure maximum footfall from day one.

Seize the chance to develop business links and research collaborations with Norway, guest country of honour this year.

Sea Tech Week is organised in the framework of “Campus mondial de la mer” by Brest metropole city council and Technopôle Brest-Iroise, with the support of European Union and Brittany region.

21–26 October 2018 ICHA 2018

La Cité, Nantes, France

  • Full name of conference: The 18th International Conference on Harmful Algae
  • Description: The ICHA 2018 scientific program will foster discussions and hopes to inspire participants from a wide array of themes to initiate collaborations within and across disciplines for the advancement of our field. While major culprits of public safety problems (the genera Alexandrium, Dinophysis, Pseudo-nitzschia for marine systems or Anabaena, Aphanizomenon and Microcystis for freshwater systems) still continue to thrive in our waters, many advances have been made in monitoring for these species and their toxins. Still, as the environment and anthropogenic stressors continue to change, our coastal and freshwater systems also undergo heavy changes. Therefore, our ability to detect novel or emerging organisms and their toxins become of growing importance. It also becomes clearer that the societal impacts of Harmful Algae are multiple and do not simply concern fisheries and aquaculture but increasingly so other sectors, including tourism, shipping, desalination and renewable energy supply. Therefore, we felt it important to reiterate the need to translate fundamental science into knowledge to help overcome societal challenges. We have thus placed the conference under the theme “From Ecosystems to Socio-ecosystems”.
    The various thematic sessions will showcase important scientific advances and highlight impacts of harmful algae in a world of fast changes and complex interactions.
  • Conference date: 21-26 October 2018
  • Location of conferenc: La Cité, Nantes, France
