Webinar series

Our webinars are an opportunity to discover specific aspects, challenges and solutions across all maritime sectors in relation to biofouling and its two main environmental issues: invasive aquatic species and greenhouse gas emissions. This is part of the efforts of the GloFouling Partnerships to provide a platform to share knowledge and increase awareness on this important issue that, left undeterred, may impact marine biodiversity and hamper the sustainability of new initiatives related to the Blue Economy. 

Webinars are open to all participants, free of charge. While the main language will be English, some webinars are offered in Spanish or French. Upcoming webinars will are featured below these lines.  For recordings of past webinars, please scroll further down the page.
