ISSMER Online Seminars – Video Recordings

We have recorded all of the ISSMER Online Seminar discussions, and made them available below for you to watch. The Online Seminars were each based on one of our core themes, developed at the last workshop in Stromness, Orkney. The aim is to get a quick update on current ISSMER member activities with the hope of bringing as many of us together to discuss our latest work and ideas.

Seminar 1 – Community

Seminar 2 – Consultation & Communication

A group of ISSMER members have collaborated on a paper ‘Establishing an agenda for social studies research in marine renewable energy’ published this month in Energy Policy, the International Journal of the Political, Economic, Planning, Environmental and Social Aspects of Energy. This paper sets out a  agenda for further research, based on our first workshop in Orkney, Scotland.
