As a part of SeaFest 2017, UL research team (Daniel Toal, Edin Omerdić and Romano Capocci) attended a two-day Marine Trade Show, the Digital Ocean Conference and Our Ocean Wealth Summit at NUI Galway. The Marine Trade Show showcased some of the highly innovative products and services emerging from more than 60 companies and organisations across all sectors of the marine economy. The Digital Ocean – Ireland’s Marine Engineering and Technology Conference featured a selection of international marine technology companies, innovative Irish Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Ireland's technology and research centres, focusing on specific opportunities for technology innovations to drive the global blue economy. Our Ocean Wealth Summit forms a key part of the Government’s integrated plan for Ireland’s marine sector, Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth, and brings together world renowned speakers, industry experts, business development agencies and the Irish business and marine research community for focused discussions on this year’s theme of ‘Rethinking Boundaries and Innovation for a Sustainable Marine Economy’.

In addition to discussion about ongoing research activities and possible collaboration, UL team invited participants to register their institutions to EXCELLABUST Marine Robotics Database (http://excellabust.mmrrc.ul.ie).
