Sea Tech Week® 2022

International

Every 2 years, the Sea Tech Week® gathers 1,000 participants in Brest, France. Among these participants an average of 30% come from abroad, notably from the featured country which is India in 2022.

India, featured country

In 2022, we are very pleased to have India as the featured country of the Sea Tech Week® since it is a major player in the maritime sector on a wide range of thematics. We already enjoy strong bilateral relations notably with the Indian Institute of Technology Goa but also with the National Institute of Ocean Technology, through the Ambassador of France to India, Mr. Emmanuel Lenain, who supported India being the country of honour of the Sea Tech Week®, and through the Ambassador of India in France, H.E. Mr. Jawed Ashraf.

On May 4th, President Emmanuel Macron and the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, welcomed the adoption of the Franco-Indian roadmap on the blue economy and ocean governance, in which the Sea Tech Week® 2022 is an important milestone.

Sea Tech Week® 2022 is a unique opportunity to build and enhance cooperation among French and Indian actors of marine science and economy, and ocean governance.

Sea Tech Week® is the ideal forum to:

  • Bring impetus to the French-Indian exchanges as envisioned on the India-France Joint Statement (visit of the Prime Minister of India to France in August 2019);
  • Reinforce the scientific and academic program GoAT that Campus mondial de la mer is currently developing with the Indian Institute of Technology, Goa, on ocean technologies;
  • Lead new bilateral synergies with the ambitious “Deep Ocean Mission” launched by the Government of India;
  • Highlight current Indian projects, like the Sagarmala project of port-led prosperity initiated by the Government of India;
  • More generally share experiences in both countries regarding maritime transport and the related topics: ports, maritime trade, naval industry, marine research, biodiversity, marine spatial planning, international law of the sea, etc.

A large delegation of officials, researchers and entrepreneurs from India is expected. The French Embassy in India, Business France in India, the Indian Embassy in Paris, the Ministry of ports, shipping and waterways and the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry are working with Campus mondial de la mer to set up this delegation and ensure match-making between India and French experts.
