Organised by the European Commission DG MARE, EMODnet and the European Marine Board, and in collaboration with EuroGOOS and Copernicus Marine Service,

the EC Ocean Observation event is taking place 
on 18 June 13:30-17:00 CEST


The discussion will be on two specific topics: marine technology (focus on EU) and ocean observing gaps and requirements. And the event will bring together diverse stakeholders across the marine knowledge value chain, from Europe and beyond: Ocean Observing experts, Marine Technology experts, Marine Research Infrastructures, wider Marine/Maritime industry, European Policy Makers, and more.

This event will aim at identifying how to accelerate the deployment of more efficient and effective ocean observation technology and gaps in ocean observation.
