Webinar Series

The OERA is proud to present a webinar series to highlight recent and ongoing research in the offshore energy sector in Nova Scotia.

The OERA webinar series is designed to help disseminate information on the research activities and results of projects in geoscience and marine renewable energy.  Webinars are designed to be a forum for industry, researchers, regulators and community stakeholders to share information, get informed, and discuss research results and implications.

Our webinars are geared towards a broad audience with a balance between non-technical and scientific jargon, prioritizing research results and their implications for the development of the offshore energy sector.
