The 9th EuroGOOS International Conference is approaching. The event, involving several Blue-Cloud partners, takes place every three years and it is dedicate to implementers and users of operational oceanography services, including marine scientists and technologists, private companies, and policymakers. 

The conference aims at evaluating the state of the art of ocean monitoring and forecasting systems and oceanographic services, and recognise new technological instruments to protect the marine environment. 

The attendees will have the opportunity to share experiences and discuss about the future of global and societal challenges related to seas and oceans.

The key priorities of the 2021 EuroGOOS Conference will be to:

  • Discuss the new approach of the EuroGOOS strategy expanding to Climate and Ocean Health;
  • Evaluate the ongoing efforts to integrate ocean observing and data initiatives at a global level, meeting societal, policy, and economic needs;
  • Highlight the benefits of cross-cutting approaches in the EuroGOOS strategy;
  • Evaluate the role of marine research infrastructures in the oceanographic system to answer the new EuroGOOS and GOOS strategies;
  • Explore new technologies in coastal oceanography;
  • Highlight the progress in linking and aligning European ocean observing networks, stakeholders, and initiatives towards building an integrated and sustained European Ocean Observing System (EOOS);
  • Highlight the progress made in modeling around European seas;
  • Highlight the progress made in integrating and aggregating European marine data to enhance its societal and economic potential (Copernicus Marine ServiceEMODnetSeaDataNet, and others);
  • Identify the future steps in building EOOS;
  • Explore how EuroGOOS and its partners will contribute to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.
