Summer school: Operational Oceanography for Blue Growth

09/07/2018 - 14/07/2018

This week long summer school is organised by the JERICO-NEXT project, hosted by the University of Malta (Physical Oceanography Research Group, Department of Geosciences). This activity forms part of the JERICO-NEXT capacity building activities and supported by the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) and the European Marine Data and Observation Network (EMODnet).

The course will focus on oceanographic data exploration, elaboration and product creation for Blue Growth. The aim is to empower participants to source, interpret and merge available data, and to acquire the key skills to transform data into knowledge and added value products. More specifically the course is intended to give a broader perspective of the impact of technological development on the marine and maritime sector, on how the Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, cloud computing and data analytics can provide new approaches to data management and knowledge creation in a smart technology-enabled future.

The course will also cover current and future methods for data and information exchange, how and where value is created in and between organisations, and the new paradigms for performance and efficiency set by human machine interfaces. In particular, the summer school will consider how all these factors can increase Blue Growth and excellence in the marine and maritime economic sectors (such as oil and gas, renewables, living resources, policy, and tourism) and related services.
