Final Event Announcement 27 January 2017

Demonstration of Next Generation Sensors for Advanced Real-Time Ocean Observation

The COMMON SENSE project will host a demonstration event and final partner meeting in Barcelona, Spain on the 27 January 2017.

The conference, entitled ‘Demonstration of Next Generation Sensors for Advanced Real-Time Ocean Observation’, is a unique event that marks the end of the COMMON SENSE project which was launched in November 2013. The project was funded to directly respond to the requirement for integrated and effective data acquisition systems by developing innovative sensors that will contribute to our understanding of how the marine environment functions.

Conference participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the COMMON SENSE prototypes of next generation in-situ marine sensors to deliver vital information about the ocean. In doing so, COMMON SENSE results can support the implementation of European Union marine policies such as the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

Professionals working in the marine environment and citizens curious about the status of our oceans are invited!
