ScotMER Symposia

In October 2018, Marine Scotland showcased recent research projects undertaken in collaboration with organisations across Scotland and Europe, in the First ScotMER symposium. We were delighted to welcome attendees across industry, academia, nature conservation organisations, and advisory bodies.

Paul Wheelhouse MSP, Minister for Energy, Connectivity and the Islands, attended the event and gave a welcoming speech highlighting the importance of both developing renewable energy and protecting Scotland’s valuable seabird populations. Following this welcome, researchers from across the UK and Europe presented their studies, from tagging programmes to statistical modelling, with time for informal discussions and networking throughout the day.
