EurOCEAN 2014 will bring together marine scientists across the broad range of disciplines with policymakers, industry and NGOs, to develop a common vision on achieving an ecosystem approach to the management of Europe’s marine resources as a fundamental requirement for sustainable Blue Growth. Highlighting the importance of Blue Growth and of commercially-driven, problem-oriented research, EurOCEAN 2014 will equally emphasize that a growing and sustainable maritime economy will also require a much greater knowledge and understanding of marine ecosystem functioning and resilience.
EurOCEAN 2014 will take place from 7 to 9 October 2014 in Rome, Italy, as an official event of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. It will run over 2.5 days with a combination of plenary sessions and parallel workshops, organized around societal, policy and regional challenges. The conference programme will reflect the high-level messages of the European Marine Board’s Navigating the Future IV foresight report. It is co-organized by the Italian National Research Council (CNR), National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics (OGS) and National Inter-University Consortium for Marine Sciences (CoNISMa), as well as the European Marine Board and the European Commission.
