This Open for Business half day event was part of an Isaac Newton Institute research programme which brought together leading expertise in the multiple disciplines involved in the theory of water waves. This event was structured to enable the formation of new relationships on the business-academic interface and to assist in identifying the common challenges that have greatest potential for research, knowledge transfer, public policy and commercial impact.
A key aim of this workshop was to highlight how the theory of water waves can impact on technology developments and deployment within industries such as:
- Offshore Renewable Energy
- Oceanic Vehicles/Shipping
- Offshore Oil and Gas Exploration
The talks explored how new theories are being developed and highlighted the mathematical models which are being created to help test efficiencies.
