This high-level symposium will celebrate the success of the Horizon 2020 EU Research and Innovation Action AtlantOS, and simultaneously mark the beginning of the international AtlantOS (Atlantic Ocean Observing System) as the All-Atlantic part of the Global Ocean Observing System. The symposium will bring together scientists, policy makers, users, funders and other stakeholders, to articulate and refine our joint Atlantic ambition for ocean observing. It will provide input to the G7-Ocean group, the international OceanObs’19 Conference and feed into the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).

Over the last four years the H2020 AtlantOS consortium, with more than 60 partners, mainly from Europe but also the US, Canada, Brazil and South Africa, worked together with the ocean observing community on the optimisation and enhancement of the integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System.

During this event the stakeholders of ocean observing can internationally share their decided strategies, requirements, achievements, and highlight benefits, in order to develop ocean observing capabilities, building on the very successful legacy of the last few decades.
