The National Science Foundation is sponsoring a series of workshops to accelerate the convergence between academic, industry, government agencies, and foundations. The NSF Convergence Accelerator’s mission is to address national-scale societal challenges through use-inspired convergence research. Using a convergence approach, the Accelerator integrates multidisciplinary research and innovation processes to transition basic research and discovery toward impactful solutions. Please join October 5, 7, and 9, 2020 for the Future of Oceans: Innovation, Exploration, and Utilization Workshop. This workshop, organized by MIT, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, and NSF, will explore ongoing challenges and emerging opportunities in ocean innovation, exploration, and utilization.
