We are delighted to be hosting an ATLAS event during Ocean Business 2019 which takes place in Southampton from 9-11 April.

We will be carrying out questionnaires during Ocean Business in order to better understand industry perspectives. Results from these will help to shape the way we incorporate industry needs in scientific research and policy, to support the sustainable growth of the Blue Economy. The questionnaire can be found here.
