Registration is now open for the EuroMarine event "Blue Science for Blue Growth: EuroMarine, connecting ideas and people" which will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, on 8 February 2017.
The EuroMarine event "Blue Science for Blue Growth: EuroMarine, connecting ideas and people" is hosted by MEP Ricardo Serrão Santos of the SEARICA Intergroup and will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, on 8 February 2017. The three-hour event will provide a platform to discuss the need for scientific research and integrative approaches to successfully tackle the marine related challenges society is facing.
This event takes place in conjunction with the EuroMarine General Assembly meeting, from 7-8 February 2017. EuroMarine is a consortium of research and academic organisations advancing marine science. DTU Aqua's Dr Patrizio Mariani is the EuroMarine Steering Committee Chair.
Since 2014 EuroMarine has, with its limited budget, supported over 50 scientific activities to bring together more than 700 stakeholders to collectively address these challenges by understanding and building scenarios for marine systems under change, and developing marine science as a provider of new concepts and as a driver for innovation and technology. The work of EuroMarine will be placed in a wider context, connecting ideas with people to share, collaborate and push boundaries. Two panel discussions with diverse participants will bring together these concepts and highlight their importance to Blue Growth.
Dr Patrizio Mariani, EuroMarine Steering Committee Chair and Senior Researcher at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU Aqua), has acknowledged the endeavours needed to achieve this goal:
"In an era of rapid transformations affecting our oceans, societies and life we are asked to provide the scientific knowledge necessary to face future challenges and to guarantee a sustainable future to the next generations".
The event is open to all those interested, but advance registration is required. Please register online at:
