The European Global Ocean Observing System, EuroGOOS, was established in 1994 to “make sure that the global infrastructure of GOOS is designed so as to guarantee the required data products
and benefits needed by Europe” (ECOPS 1994). Since then EuroGOOS has been developing operational oceanography in Europe in the framework of the UNESCO’s Intergovernmental
Oceanographic Commission Global Ocean Observing System programme (IOC GOOS).

Every three years the EuroGOOS conference provides a forum of interaction between marine scientists and technologists developing operational oceanography products, and the users of these services including decision and policy-makers as well as the private sector. 

The EuroGOOS conference provides the opportunity to review the present ocean monitoring and forecasting capacities and their services, and to identify new challenges and the underpinning
science and technology priorities. The conference facilitates dialogue, experience sharing and future planning with international partners and stakeholders, towards a more coordinated response to global challenges and societal needs related to seas and the global ocean.
