      • Mission in Rimouski: Marine Sciences under 40cm of snow

      • The icy St. Lawrence River

        The Forum en Sciences de la Mer was held in Rimouski (Quebec, Canada) from November 11 to 13. Sheltered from the first snowstorm of the season, the 300 participants shared their research activities in marine science and technology and raised the issues of sustainable and responsible marine development in Quebec, in a provincial economic and political context very conducive to these issues.

        The Forum was organized by the Réseau Québec maritime (RQM) and the Technopole maritime du Québec (TMQ). As part of the Créocean project carried out in partnership with TMQ and Brest métropole and supported by the Fonds franco-québécois pour la coopération décentralisée, a delegation from Brest, led by Mr. Gourtay, Vice-President of Brest métropole in charge of the economy, was able to attend and contribute to the Forum's programme:

        the Brest delegation

        Jean-Marie Guyader, Professor-Researcher at ISEN Yncrea Ouest Brest, presented the research conducted at L@bISEN - YNCREA on the processing of underwater images by polarization techniques to overcome turbidity problems. The laboratory specializes in artificial intelligence applied to various fields (sea, health...).

        Christian Jochum, Professor-Researcher at ENSTA Bretagne and member of the IRDL, presented the research work of his team on sustainable transport (motorway of the sea, traction of ships by rigid wings and kites).

        Damien Demoor, Innovation & Business Developer at Naval Group, presented the European projects PIAQUO and AGESCIC (both labelled by the Atlantic Brittany Sea Cluster), which focus on reducing the impact of underwater noise related to human activities (works and maritime traffic) on ecosystems.

        Juliette Rimetz-Planchon, Project Coordinator with the Campus mondial de la mer team, Technopôle Brest-Iroise, presented the services offered by the Campus mondial de la mer, including the Marine research infrastructures and facilities portal, Ocean Hackathon® and Sea Tech Week.

        In addition, Laurent Chauvaud, from the French-Quebecois laboratory BeBest, CNRS-IUEM, opened the Wednesday plenary with an exciting little story about a coastal ecology written by scallops. Frédéric Olivier, MNHN-Station biologique de Concarneau, and Emmanuelle Hascouët, Fovearts, Magnum Photo, also working within BeBest, were present.

        In addition to the research collaborations between the Breton point and the lower St. Lawrence, two very similar territories in terms of marine science and technology activities, discussions focused on Quebec's contribution to the future Sea Tech Week, Rimouski's participation in Ocean Hackathon® 2020 and the arrival of Quebec teachers and trainees for the 2020 edition of the "Les enjeux environnementaux de l'économie bleue" training.
