Brest Métropole Océane hosts the 9th Sea Tech Week !
Brest is setting a benchmark worldwide in the field of oceanographic research and marine technology, and has created an event to match its reputation by bringing to the city every two years leading experts in various marine-related disciplines.
Brest is a global platform for marine sciences and is the centre for 60% of French research in this field. For this reason, Sea Tech Week is held in Brest every two years and brings together international experts in marine science and technology.
Since its launch in 1999, the event has become increasingly successful and well known. Attracting more than one thousand delegates, 40% of them from abroad, Sea Tech Week has become one of the biggest European gatherings in the field of marine science.
Moreover, it has established a partnership with a learned society: the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), ensuring an event in Europe alternates with the international Oceans Conference.
Sea Tech Week is the result of the work of research bodies based in Brest: Ifremer, ENSTA Bretagne, UBO, Telecom Bretagne, etc. What makes Sea Tech Week different is the diverse range of disciplines associated with marine science and technology and of event participants.
