Rostock's Ocean Technology Summer School

Rostock's Ocean Technology (RoOT) Summer School is a two-week course which is based in and around the Ocean Technology Campus (OTC). 16 carefully chosen participants from academia and industry will have the unique opportunity to gain insight into various interdisciplinary aspects of ocean technology, with a special focus on the five fields of innovation which make up the Cluster OTC Rostock:

  • Subsea Mobility & Autonomy
  • Ocean Lense
  • Digital Mission
  • Sustainable Ocean Use
  • Open Innovation

Specially tailored lectures and exercises will provide the participants with the required know-how to tackle real-world problems within various practical applications both on land and at sea (aboard Rostock's research catamaran Limanda). The program will also offer the opportunity to participate in a hackathon (with no-code/low-code options for participants that are not so familiar with coding) and to learn about advantages of open innovation, open source, networking and generally out-of-the-box thinking.
