Accelerating action for a healthy ocean

About the DNV GL and Microsoft Studio

At the Xynteo Exchange this year, DNV GL and Microsoft will host a Studio to tackle several of the most complicated and difficult challenges confronting the world’s oceans and our management of them. Leaders from business, policy, research and civil society will work together towards creative ideas for addressing those challenges, including getting better-quality data on the ocean space, sharing that data more effectively, leveraging new technologies, and using data to develop standards of practice for economic activities of many kinds in and on our oceans including marine food production and transportation.

On day one, we will interrogate the complex nature of the relationship between human activities and the health of our oceans; and explore how our capabilities could be brought to bear in understanding and managing the oceans and our impact upon them. On day two, we will identify potential interventions within these problem areas, with the aim of developing early-stage concepts for projects that can deliver both human and commercial value. Finally, we will select the most promising concepts to present in the Marketplace.

More information on each of the pre-defined problem areas will be updated soon. 

Date and time: 9 October, 1230 - 1730 & 10 October, 0830 - 1300
