Frontiers in Marine Science is now taking submissions for a special research topic featuring ocean science instrumentation methods and position-type papers covering public-private collaboration, new technology commercialization and related case studies
s! Sequoia’s Dr. Ole Mikkelsen (President & CEO) and Dr. Wayne Slade (VP Science & Technology) will be heading a group of guest editors, including Dr. Paula Bontempi (Dean of Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island, USA), Dr. Alex Nimmo Smith (Associate Professor in Marine Physics, University of Plymouth, UK) and Dr. Ho Kyung Ha (Associate Professor, Department of Ocean Sciences, Inha University, Korea).
The idea for the topic arose from the 2020 Ocean Sciences Meeting in San Diego, CA, where the conveners argued that scientists had observational needs that are not being met and scientists voiced concerns that they rarely knew enough details about the state-of-the-art amongst the individual instrumentation manufacturers.This topic is a great opportunity if you’re an manufacturer to discuss underutilized instruments that are available, highlight new innovations, or explain your niche. It is also a great opportunity for program managers and policy makers to discuss collaboration and commercialization. For more details, visit the research topic website.
