The Blue Technology Barometer

A webcast presented by
MIT Technology Review Insights

Exploring ocean sustainability through new technology

The Blue Technology Barometer is a ranking of 66 coastal countries and territories on their progress and commitment toward protecting ocean sustainability. It measures the degree to which economies are prioritizing the protection of ocean health, through sustainable marine activity, blue innovation, and policy implementation. This study by MIT Technology Review Insights was conducted in association with Infosys, Morgan Stanley, and Canada's Ocean Supercluster.

Join us as we present the results of this unique global research and as we debate the highlights with the foremost experts in the field.
