EUA member in France, Aix-Marseille University, organises the online 2021 European Conference “Protect our oceans, the challenge of Europe’s global leadership” on 16 June 2021. The conference will be held in English and French, and registrations are open for free to anyone interested in the topic.
The 2021 European Conference coincides with the launch of two major initiatives to strengthen the European and global ocean science community: the United Nations Decade of Science for Sustainable Development and of the first calls for proposal of Horizon Europe, the framework-programme for research and innovation of the European Union, including its Starfish Mission for healthy oceans. Aix-Marseille University and its partners are contributing to both, as the two important initiatives will accelerate the development of ocean science and strengthen the European and global ocean science community.
Within this context the goal of the European Conference is to emphasise the importance of cross-disciplinary expertise and of international scientific collaboration, particularly as the Covid-19 pandemic has led to weaken collaboration between researchers.
