Conférence finale du projet Racket in the oceans

Underwater noise is a major environmental issue. The Observatory for Responsible Innovation and the Interdisciplinary Institute of Innovation is tackling it through "Racket in the Oceans": a series of workshops with major actors and stakeholders, that translates into a large international conference and a policy proposal. The initiative is carried out with the help of an independent working group supervised by Héloïse Berkowitz and Hervé Dumez of the Centre de Recherche en Gestion of the École Polytechnique. Register now to our closing conference at the Maison des Océans in Paris, 20 September 2016!
