In 2010 and 2012, OO organized a Northeast Rebreather & Advanced Diving Technology Workshop at the University of Rhode Island. The events intended to bring together stakeholders from all diving technology sectors – rec/tec, scientific diving, commercial diving, policymakers, technologists, and students – to share ideas, discuss future opportunities for collaboration, and spark some excitement for the future.
Both events were successful in attracting close to 100 workshop participants for the day-long event.
The workshops were made possible with the generous support of the following:
- Ocean Opportunity Inc.
- University of Rhode Island
- Manta Industries
- URI’s COEUT
- Ocean Edge Outfitters
- Frank Copren/Blue Steel Cylinders
- Manta Bite Mouthpieces
- Benthic Exploration
OO hopes to create additional workshops in the future, but needs your help. Donate today!
