|Short Title:||Deep-seabed exploitation|
|Long Title:||Technology options for deep-seabed exploitation - Tackling economic, environmental and societal challenges|
|Description:||Exploration and exploitation of the deep-seas in search of marine minerals and genetic resources have over the past fifteen years received increased attention. Developments in sub-marine technologies, rising raw material prices and scarcity, and advancements in biotechnology, are changing the business-case for further investments in the marine environment. Increase in exploitation has much potential, but also poses great challenges. Policy action is needed, to balance trade-offs between economic, social and environmental aspects associated with future developments.|
|Focus:||Deep sea, environment, resources|
