• Catch the Next Wave

    Catch the Next Wave (CTNW) is a prestigious annual conference that takes a longer term view of the capabilities that are shaping our future ability to explore, understand, exploit and protect the oceans. Historically the event pairs leading global experts to share latest technological solutions being developed to tackle related challenges accross different sectors and highlight potential opportunities for the ocean community to learn from other sectors.  CTNW’s aim is to stimulate creative thinking and leave the audience buzzing with new ideas that might lead to new research and business opportunities.

    Catch the Next Wave 2018: Frontiers of Exploration is organised in association with The Explorers Club

    CTNW 2018 will examine the intrinsic relationship between exploration and technology, how each drives the other.  Pairs of leading explorers and senior technologists will discuss role technology has played in man’s ability to explore environments on the seafloor, in the oceans, on the oceans, over the oceans and into space, as well as casting a look at how emerging technology might make ‘waves’ for ocean exploration, over the following decades.

    As in the previous four editions, the programme of experts will engage the audience to consider opportunities for technology transfer from non-marine sectors into marine.
