Aarhus University will host the 13th Baltic Sea Science Congress, 2021. During the congress, the state-of-the-art in our scientific understanding of the Baltic Sea functioning will be presented and implications for ecosystem management discussed.
In 2021, the update of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan is expected to be adopted and the UN Decade of Ocean Science will commence. In light of these important milestones, a prime focus of the 13th BSSC will be to establish a platform for connecting scientists and decision makers.

Theme 3: Emerging threats and potential consequences
Theme 4: Introducing new technologies
Theme 5: Stewardship for the Baltic Sea
