The upcoming EuroSea Symposium on Ocean Observing and Forecasting, a high-level event bringing together national and international stakeholders from policy, science, and industry, takes place on 21 September 2023, at the IOC/UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.

The EuroSea Symposium is a momentous occasion to celebrate the remarkable innovations in European ocean observing and forecasting over recent years. It will serve as a platform for participants to reflect on past achievements and address the challenges that lie ahead in this vital field. The event aims to present and discuss recommendations for building a sustainable ocean observing and forecasting system that provides accessible, timely, and actionable data and information to all ocean users. By fostering collaboration between diverse stakeholders, including policymakers, scientists, and industry leaders, the symposium strives to develop a unified approach to ocean research and forecasting.

The symposium will be live-streamed, ensuring wider accessibility for participants across the globe.
