The European Marine Board Biennial Open Forum acts as a platform to bring together a wide range of marine science stakeholders to discuss and share knowledge, identify common priorities, develop common positions and collaborate. The 7th EMB Forum will foster discussion and collaboration to advance the role of big data, digitalization and artificial intelligence in marine science to support the European Green Deal, the post-2020 EU Biodiversity Strategy, and the development of a Digital Twin Ocean.
The Blue-Cloud consortium was represented by experts from Seascape Belgium and VLIZ, as Patricia Martin-Cabrera (VLIZ) took part in the panel on the EU Biodiversity Strategy at 14:00, and Kate Larkin (Seascape) joined the session on the Digital Twin of the Ocean at 15:30.
