Dalhousie Ocean Strategy Workshop

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on February 22, 2021 in Events

Dalhousie’s ocean research crosses 13 faculties and attracts more than $180 million in grants and awards annually. The Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) hosts key ocean research infrastructure and facilities and have a history of strong ocean initiatives, including the Marine and Environmental Law Institute, Ocean School, the Ocean Tracking Network, MEOPAR and the Ocean Frontier Institute.

OFI needs to integrate its research across all faculties and ocean disciplines (natural, social, and applied sciences, engineering and humanities). OFI also needs to link research outcomes to societal needs and benefits, and to communicate research findings to funding agencies, governments, industry and the general public. Dalhousie needs to capitalize on its strengths as a national and world leader in ocean research and innovation.

The Dalhousie Ocean Research Strategy consultation is now underway.

Between July and December 2020, there was a preliminary round of discussions with Associate Deans Research and other leaders across the University, to lay the groundwork for Dalhousie’s Ocean Research Strategy. OFI is now preparing for a consultation workshop to take the next important steps in developing the Strategy, on March 24 from 9:00-11:00 AST on Zoom. Please click the following link to register for the workshop:
