Make sure you catch NERA Decommissioning Project Director Andrew Taylor at the Australian Marine Sciences Association (AMSA) conference. His presentation, 'Should it stay or should it go? Informing decommissioning decisions through the National Decommissioning Research Initiative', is on Thursday 11 July at 11.30.
AMSA is Australia’s peak professional marine science body with nearly 1000 members from around Australia. The theme of AMSA 2019 is “Marine Science for a Blue Economy”. The theme focuses on science that will contribute to safeguarding the health of our oceans and marine life while also sustaining the economic and societal benefits that accompany a growing nation.
Invited national and international plenary speakers will impart their knowledge relating to the blue economy, and symposia topics will be inclusive of a wide range of disciplines including the critical blue economy challenges outlined in Australia’s National Marine Science Plan. The theme, and the conference itself, is an exciting venture that will help facilitate and foster collaborative partnerships between industry and marine science researchers well into the future.
