Conference on Europe's Ocean Observing System (EOOS), 24 October 2017 – Capri (Italy)

EurOcean and the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) will host a conference focussing on EOOS on 24 October 2017. The objective of this half day event is to share information on recent developments and future plans for ocean observations in Europe, and to discuss existing regional and European-wide ocean observation and supporting initiatives. The discussion will address the principal EOOS key drivers (research, technology, societal and environmental) to gain a better understanding on the status and gaps in the European observing capacity at different geographical scales. It will also provide the opportunity to learn from the experience of participants in relation to existing efforts in the coordination and streamlining of usage of marine research infrastructure and marine data collection. Finally, the workshop will aim to clarify potential roles for EurOcean, its members and related initiatives in relation to EOOS. You can register for the conference via the website.
