Vendée Globe 2024 – Ocean Sailing and Data Collection, a Race for Change – Bern

4th March 2024 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Swiss professional sailor Oliver Heer will present his project at the University of Bern on 4 March: while racing in the Vendée Globe 2024 and navigating around Antarctica, he will be collecting forefront environmental data. The project is part of a collaboration with the Swiss Polar Institute, which has brought together a group of experts from UNIBE, UNIL, and ETH Zurich for data analysis. This new data collection could lead to unprecedented information on the Southern Ocean and aims towards a better understanding of climate change, its impact on oceans and on the global scale.

Join us for the event to discover more about this inspiring project and its initiator, Oliver Heer. The event will also feature a presentation by Prof. Thomas Frölicher.
