Catch The Next Wave 2019

Catch The Next Wave 2019: Frontiers of Exploration

Organised in partnership with The Explorers Club


The 2019 edition of Catch The Next Wave will look at how technology enables exploration and how, in turn, exploration drives the development of new and novel technologies.

The program will highlight how the spirit of exploration drives forward science and technology, with consequent benefits to society and the protection of the natural environment. Speaker pairings comprising a leading explorer and a scientist or technologist pushing the boundaries of what is possible will examine the role technology plays in exploring environments on the seafloor, in and on the oceans and into space. Speakers will cast a look at how emerging technology will make ‘waves’ for ocean exploration over the coming decades.
