Marine science conference draws from the abundant scientific research now prolific in the universities of technology, and finding its way to proffering solutions to the various challenges of the ocean engineering and infrastructures .Africa in no other time than this desires a meeting point for both science and technology to serve the exacting needs of the offshore and subsea sector. Besides the expanding deep sea ocean resources of Africa is the need to create a blue economy which the African Union has enshrined as a rule but is still searching for needed scientific infrastructures to effectively execute.

African Marine Science conference on this note desires to share insight into the modern research and frontier cutting edge technologies, which through this conference and wonderful presence of professors, academics, brilliant researchers, industry delegates and talented student communities will advance the overall offshore and subsea support community.

Marine Science’s meeting’s goal is to bring together, a multi-disciplinary group of scientists and engineers from all over Africa and rest of the world to present and exchange break-through ideas relating to the Marine Science, and Technology as well as the emerging field of  Ocean economics and Offshore Logistics . 

We look forward to an excellent meeting with great scientists from different countries in Africa and rest of the world for the most recent expositions of scientific breakthroughs in all aspects of Marine Science and Technology. Thank you.

Yours Sincerely,
