Dr. Kate Gormley will commence a 3-year NERC funded Knowledge Exchange Fellowship in October 2014.
WHAT IS THE VISION?
To become a trusted environmental "broker" between the industry, adcadmia and NERC.
WHY DO WE NEED THIS?
HOW WILL IT BE ACHIEVED?
By developing a Knowledge Exchange programme centred around the accessibility of environmental data and building upon current industry/academia projects and hypothesis-led science.
At present environmental data used in offshore industry Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) and permit applications (e.g. PONs) are located in many different places, and in many different data formats.
This fellowship will pull these data sources together into a single online database portal, where data can be mapped for a particular area of interest.
WHERE WILL THIS LEAD IN THE FUTURE?
