The crucial role of detailed knowledge of the seabed has never been so well highlighted as recently with the proclamation by the United Nations of the Decade of Ocean Sciences
The crucial role of detailed knowledge of the seabed has never been so well highlighted as recently with the proclamation by the United Nations of the Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021 – 2030) or the Nippon Foundation – GEBCO Seabed 2030 project aiming at 100% of the seabed mapped worldwide by 2030. Such an intensification of hydrographic surveys brings new opportunities in terms of recruitment of Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) as well as technological and methodological solutions in the hydrographic and hydrospatial fields.
Now in its third year, this international fall school provides participants with a unique multi-disciplinary training experience, involving close interaction with high-level scientists, professionals and stakeholders from the hydrospatial and maritime fields in a cutting-edge technological context. Participants will have the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and develop their competencies through courses, practical work, conferences and activities allowing them to live the experience of surveying on board a hydrographic vessel.
*Bilingual school (French and English) and offered in a hybrid mode (on campus at Université Laval and online).
COMREN leverages Canada’s ocean mapping research and education community to support a sustainable blue economy. This CoP aims to develop research activities, achieve technology transfer to industry, and develop and run educational programs. COMREN operates in liaison with government agencies and international organizations, to increase Canada’s ocean and coastal mapping research, education capacity and presence, both domestically and internationally. Central to this is providing opportunities to train Highly Qualified Personnel (HQP) who can help advance ocean technologies and solve problems, both applied and theoretical, with hydrospatial science and the ideas of neighbouring disciplines.
