Power in Partnerships: Innovative Collaborations Between Ocean Scientists and Ocean Industry I Posters

Session ID#: 84544

Session Description:
Collaborations between ocean research scientists and ocean industry are critical for building and strengthening partnerships that can produce new products and novel applications at the forefront for the advancement of marine science. Advantages of such partnerships include the technological innovation or skillful improvement of marine instruments and platforms; the expansion of science-based products with application to real-world problems; and the valuable exposure of oceanography students to private sector experience and employment opportunities. Our session will explore how marine researchers; oceanographic institutions; workforce and economic development organizations; and ocean industry build and leverage resources that strengthen these partnerships. We welcome personal accounts from collaborators that share the experiences, successes, and challenges faced in these partnerships, particularly those that focus on the design, performance, application, and translation of real-world science research and results. We, similarly, welcome lessons learned and successful models for training a future workforce for ocean industry careers. The goal is to develop best practices to help facilitate and coordinate efficient, holistic, and transformative collaborations among researchers, students, and ocean industries to positively advance the collection of ocean and atmospheric observations.
