OW2022 DESCRIPTION

OCEAN WEEK 2022: AN OCEAN OF KNOWLEDGE

 

Ocean Week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas. The conference is a vital part of NTNU’s effort to contribute to Norway’s role as an ocean nation. 
As the signature event of NTNU Oceans, the purpose of Ocean Week is to lay foundations for groundbreaking interdisciplinary ocean research and for collaboration across sectors to solve the sustainability challenges of the Oceans.

At Ocean Week 2022, for the first time we expand our reach to all three campus cities of NTNU: Trondheim, Ålesund and Gjøvik.

  • In Ålesund on day 1, we zoom in on two of the outcomes of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and ask:
    A healthy and productive ocean by 2030 – can we reach the goals?
  • In Trondheim on day 2, we focus on the need to boost our blue knowledge to secure a sustainable blue economy.
  • In Gjøvik on day 3, we focus on our inland water challenges and launch “Mission Mjøsa” – an ambitious initiative to map the largest lake in Norway.

Ocean Week will engage participants with presentations and discussions that aim to inform and to inspire. We invite researchers, policymakers, industry actors and engaged citizens to take part in shaping ‘the science we need for the Ocean we want.’ 


Previous Ocean Week Conferences

Previous Ocean Week Conferences

Ocean week is the annual conference hosted by NTNU Oceans, one of NTNU’s four strategic research areas, and the conference is a vital part in NTNU’s work to contribute to Norway’s role as an ocean nation.

Previous Ocean Weeks have received visits and contributions from leading scientists, artists, industry and business representatives, diplomats, politicians, activists, and even royalty when His Majesty King Harald V of Norway visited the conference in 2019.
In 2021 Prime Minister Erna Solberg attended the conference with a talk on The Ocean Panel and the Ocean Decade.

At Ocean Week 2018 and Ocean Week 2019 around 300 participants each day followed more than 200 presentations where national and international speakers presented the latest developments on Ocean Sciences and discussed the impact that Ocean Research, technology, innovation, policy making & social tendencies has in our lives.

In addition to the sessions, daily stands, art exhibits, robotic demos and workshops provide a great networking arena for the companies and institutions represented.
