Environmental Seminar (29 November 2016)

November 29, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Brush up your knowledge of the marine environment, get research insights and hear the latest on a series of hot topics at our Environmental Seminar.

Best practise on oil spill response and noise assessment will be shared at the event which will also discuss topical matters such as working in a low carbon economy, Brexit, ecosystem services, industry environmental performance and operating in marine protected areas.

Insights to work being done to address gaps in our knowledge about sharks, skates and rays in Scottish waters will also be among presentations that will be given at the one-day event.

As well as a great learning experience and a chance to hear about new research in the marine environment, our Environmental Seminar is a great networking opportunity.

It should be of interest to those working in all aspects of environmental management within industry
