Irish Society of Ocean Studies is Closing
We are sorry to announce the closure of the Irish Society of Ocean Studies. We have tried hard to make ISOS a place for the exchange of ideas and information between students, researchers, industry and interested individuals. Unfortunately, our ambitions exceeded our resources. Founded in 2008, the society had a dedicated core group. Over time, personal circumstances changed and, while we tried, the reality is that we were unable to make ISOS the sustainable platform it needed to be.
The information that you provided upon signing up with ISOS is held in a database, which will be permanently expunged in the coming days. Your data will not be retained nor will it be transferred to any third party. The account, which you created upon signing up, will be irrevocably removed and RSS and iCal facilities disabled. If you have any questions about this process, please email us at email@example.com. The email address will remain live for a few more months.
When we started ISOS, we believed that there was a need for a community forum in the Irish marine and maritime sectors. That need is more apparent to us today than it ever has been and we have found stakeholders very receptive to the idea. The opportunity exists for the founding of a new society, which we think could make a difference in bringing people together. While we have sadly come to the end of the road in developing ISOS, we have learned a lot and would be happy to offer whatever support we can to a new group. So, in parting, we offer this challenge: Will you build it?
Thank you for your support.
