The AIR Centre at UNOC 2022

The 2022 UN Ocean Conference, co-hosted by the Governments of Kenya and Portugal, took place on 27 June – 1 July 2022, in Lisbon, Portugal. The AIR Centre was present in several activities, both as organizers and participants of UNOC official side-events.


ESAPlastics - De-Risk Action: Spectrometer for Marine Litter. This action will evaluate and develop at a low TRL, prospective technology that in the future can lead to the development of a spectrometer for marine litter detection from space. Clearly there is an opportunity to develop innovative technology that can take advantage of Earth Observation satellite constellation to provide a continuous monitoring of earth oceans and coastal areas.
