Governing the oceans of tomorrow: How ocean monitoring delivers on the blue arm of the Green Deal
June 22, 2022 @ 4:00 am - 5:00 am
Experts from Fraunhofer, TNO and CoLAB +ATLANTIC will deliver insights on how to manage hyper-connectivity and data complexity in the ocean towards effective policy. Rasmus Andresen, Member of the European Parliament will talk about the relevance of research and innovation in policy-making and the Green Deal for the oceans of tomorrow.
Join us and participate in the debate on 22 June!
Our oceans, seas and coastal areas face tremendous challenges caused by the climate crisis, environmental pollution, and ecological pressures. At the same time, they play a crucial role in raw material extraction, climate mitigation and adaptation, energy supply and our well-being. Ocean monitoring enables us to create knowledge of the state of the ocean and base political decisions on reliable data.
This event will gather ISSS researchers, who elaborate on the challenges in the ocean environment caused by human activities and the benefits of innovative ocean monitoring technologies for evidence-based policy making. These innovative solutions enable us to work with sparse data and to create knowledge of the state of the ocean. Further technological development and the transfer of the respective research results will generate actionable recommendations and implement impactful solutions to act for the protection, restoration, and sustainable use of the oceans.
