This series of online seminar discussions is intended to bring together researchers interested in social, cultural, policy and planning issues related to marine energy, and ocean power. Everyone is invited to participate in these video conferences, but places are limited.

We have finalised plans for the ISSMER Online Seminar Series, and have decided to move ahead and hold them in the next three months (November, December, January). Each seminar will feature 3 short presentations from speakers to stimulate the discussion. Details below…
