Drittes All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum

Zeitraum: 03.12.2020 - 04.12.2020 Ort: online

The Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), in partnership with the Directorate-General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission, will host the 3rd All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum on 3 and 4 December 2020.

The event will take place virtually and will focus on recovery from the severe economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. No nation has been spared the harsh socio-economic fallout resulting from hard lockdown restrictions, and with the pandemic entering what many have called a "second wave", several countries have been forced to reimpose such restrictions.

The Forum will provide a platform for a diverse audience, ranging from policy makers, research leaders and academics to civil society representatives, entrepreneurs and the youth, to engage in inspirational topics relating to the Atlantic Ocean.

Taking place over two days, the event will showcase the progress of initiatives to support the implementation of the Belém and Galway statements. These initiatives are aligned with the relevant blueprints of the All-Atlantic partners, such as South Africa's Operation Phakisa Oceans Economy, the European Union's Blue Growth Strategy, the Brazilian Blue Economy, Canada's Ocean Strategy, as well as the relevant policies and strategies of the United States of America.

Further information and a registration link are available on the event website.
