KEPLER Final General Assembly

The third and final KEPLER GA took place on 21st-22nd June 2021. Day 1 kicked off with a welcome and introduction from Nick Hughes, Project Co-ordinator. Day 1 also focused on work packages 1-5, with overview presentations on each subtask and plenty of time for questions and discussions. Participants were also invited to view some of the WP6 dissemination activities such as the KEPLER video and brochures.

Work Package leaders presented results from each work package team, highlighting key deliverables and events. Day 2 was an internal project meeting, to review feedback and collate actions for submission of final deliverables.  The KEPLER team would like to extend our thanks to all the speakers and attendees that made this final meeting a success.

KEPLER Online Round Table

The KEPLER project is seeking feedback from those working with offshore and coastal engineering in Polar Regions.

The project has prepared a number of recommendations as to how the European Copernicus programme can evolve to better serve the needs of users in the Polar Regions, and the purpose of this questionnaire is to find out whether you think that these are appropriate for your use cases, or whether they require further work.

The KEPLER Online round table: Engineering & Researcher information requirements consists of a short pre recorded video by Nick Hughes- (Project Coordinator and Ice Services leader at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute) and ten questions.
