Ravenna, Italy & Online

The European Green Deal and its key objectives require actions, investments, stakeholder input and also public/private support. The new approach for a sustainable blue economy presented by the Commission in May 2021 highlighted the opportunities offered by blue economy in the context of the green recovery. European Maritime Day EMD 2022 will be the occasion to discuss and highlight key actions in the transition to clean and healthy oceans and a sustainable blue economy.

At the core of European Maritime Day is a 2-day conference. High-level plenary sessions including inspirational speakers, leadership exchanges and stakeholders’ workshops attract experts and stakeholders from across Europe and beyond. European Maritime Day 2022 will take place as a physical event on 19 and 20 May 2022.

19 May 2022 15:45 CEST - Ocean observations, marine data and services for the European Green Deal

This workshop will discuss the value of a coordinated, sustained, and fit-for-purpose ocean observing and information system serving policy, industry, and wider society. Experts and audience will debate how this might be achieved through, among others, European framework and national commitments, efficient science-policy interface, as well as public-private partnerships. The workshop will look ahead at the opportunities, gaps, and priorities to reach the European Green Deal objectives.

Our workshop will bring together invited experts and audience to look ahead at the opportunities, gaps, and priorities to reach the European Green Deal objectives. The workshop is co-organised by Blue-Cloud, EuroSea and EMODnet. The priorities released in a joint policy brief coordinated by Eurosea, and produced with Blue-Cloud and other EU projects NAUTILOSEuroFleets+iAtlanticODYSSEA, and AtlantECO, will be discussed during the meeting as well.
