Influential Speaker Line-Up Confirmed for Catch the Next Wave’s Return at Oi24

The organizers of Oceanology International 2024 (Oi24) have announced a stellar line-up of expert speakers for the much-anticipated return of the Catch the Next Wave series at the ocean technology and marine science exhibition and conference at London’s ExCeL from 12th to 14th March.

Taking place on the final day of a diverse and hard-hitting Oi conference program, CTNW is restored to the event agenda for the sixth time with a special edition focusing on innovation at the ocean-climate nexus.

A high-profile and inspirational list of industry-leading specialists from within and outside of the ocean community will take to the stage to tackle the issues and explore the solutions and options arising from the climate and biodiversity crisis.

Among the highlights is an opening keynote, ‘Rising to the Challenge’, by Sir David King, Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, a former chief scientific adviser to the UK government, and the founder and chair of the Climate Crisis Advisory Group (CCAG), an independent panel of leading international climate experts.

Open to registered attendees only, the premium Catch the Next Wave conference aims to spark new thinking and ideas across disciplinary boundaries and between sectors, taking a futuristic look at how key areas of rapidly evolving technology might help to achieve net zero and beyond, at the same time as supporting the restoration of the Earth’s essential biodiversity and ecosystem services.

CTNW speaker and conference committee member Jyotika Virmani said: “I have been part of Catch the Next Wave for many years and what I find fascinating and wonderful about Catch the Next Wave is that it is the only conference which pairs together what is happening in marine technology with the equivalent of what is happening outside marine technology. You really get to see what is going on in other fields like medicine, material science and start to think about how they can interact and what we can pull into the marine field.”
