The Authority hosts workshops on the scientific and technical nature of its work relating to the deep seabed mining of minerals, the environmental impacts of such exploration and how the data and information collected by the various scientific institutions can be standardized and shared with its member states.
The first in the series of workshops was held in 1998 with the most recent scheduled for February 2008 in Chennai, India.
At these workshops, experts from academic institutions, public and private enterprises, contractors, members of the Legal and Technical Commission and Member States will exchange views on the rationale of the various programmes of work and develop a more detailed strategy to acquire the relevant public and private data required to lead to a cross-pollination of ideas between experts of the scientific community at large.
These workshops include oral presentations and working group meetings culminating in recommendations to the Authority on various matters pertaining to its mandated work.
