EMD 2017 – Inspiring engagement for a sustainable future for our seas & MARINA Pitch presentation

EMD 2017

The European Maritime Day represents the EU major event  to raise the visibility of maritime sectors and support an integrated approach to maritime affairs. European Maritime Day is in fact the annual meeting point for Europe’s maritime community to network, discuss and forge joint action. The EMD 2017 conference and exhibition will be held on 18-19 May 2017 in Poole, UK. (Find here the EMD 2017 programme)

MARINA project will be joining the European Maritime Day taking part in two Parallel Stakeholder Workshops: the “Inspiring engagement for a sustainable future for our seas” and “Project Pitch Presentations on Sustainability & Governance”, both scheduled on 18 May.

Inspiring engagement for a sustainable future for our seas
13:30-15:00
(Lighthouse Arts & Conference Centre, Poole  –  Function Room 2 )

Organisers: WWF-UK; Nausicaa, Centre National de la Mer; XPRO Consulting Limited
The workshop will involve a new facilitation activity focusing on future development trends in our seas which is designed to highlight communication challenges between sectors. This will be used as a starting point for a discussion about engagement best practices and attendees will leave with a host of new engagement resources to explore.

Objectives:

  • Practically demonstrate the challenges of working with diverse marine interest group;
  • Share positive lessons and approaches for tackling these challenges through engagement;
  • Produce a collective statement supporting wide stakeholder involvement.

Moderators: Sarah Young, WWF, UK, Xenia Schneider, XPRO Consulting Limited, Cyprus, Iwona GIN, Nausicaa, Centre National de la Mer, France.

 

Project Pitch Presentations on Sustainability & Governance
17:00-18:30

    Restoration and conservation of coastal and submerged heritage using solutions based on nanotechnologies - MARINA Workshop 

    24 October 2017
    9 am – 5.30 pm 
    Bruxelles
    National Research Council Liason Office
    Rue du Trône, 98
    1050
    Belgium

    MARINA Project organizes the workshop "Restoration and conservation of coastal and submerged heritage using solutions based on nanotechnologies", with a view to co-constructing a common understanding of concerns and barriers on the adoption of RRI approach in the context of shared nanotech-marine R&D and policies.

    With several coastal zones being among the densest populated areas, mixed metropolitan coastal landscapes have emerged around historic port cities posing new challenges for conservation, management and transmission of existing tangible and intangible values. The nanotechnologies constitute a great promise for facing these challenges in the domain of environmental conservation, giving that, it was found important analysing the links of nanotechnology to the marine environment through cultural heritage.

    The workshop is addressed to explore potential synergies between MARINA and the domain of nanotechnologies, amongst the most relevant H2020 enabling technologies. This “bridge” will define the transferability of the MARINA results in the nanotechnologies on one hand, and enrich the knowledge base of MARINA with valuable insights. We will create added value through a collaborative debate by using participatory and interactive methods, among different subjects, organisations and initiatives invited. Based on a 3 triggering questions, we will use them as interaction start-up enabling the discussion of potential solutions and methods bounding the 3 different stages of heritage governance: restoration, fruition, conservation.
    Why participate -  The main result will be the definition of a path towards the exploitation of methodologies and policies helping the local communities, local and national stakeholders and policymakers to remove barriers limiting the adoption of RRI. The participants will co-construct a common understanding of concerns and barriers on the adoption of RRI approach in the context of shared nanotech-marine R&D and policies; this will be a RRI-valuable result. Additionally, this workshop will help to evaluate the interest of the Nanotech and Heritage-related communities in inheriting the MARINA-RRI knowledge base and update it also by methods developed and services offered by MARINA-RRI partners.
