Building on the work being carried out in relevant international fora, including the forthcoming UN Conference to Support the Implementation of SDG 14, Portugal is organizing the Oceans Meeting 2017, which includes a Ministerial segment, to take place in Lisbon on the 7th and 8th of September 2017, dedicated to “The Ocean and Human Health”.

The International Meeting of Ministers of the Sea is the primary focus of this event and aims to discuss common international policies for the Ocean. Understanding this complexity can only be achieved with an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from expertise across a diverse range of disciplines within natural, social and economic sciences, public health and medicine.

The objective of this International Conference is to share ideas with international experts about the “Oceans and Human Health”.

The Oceans Business Dialogues are organised as part of the Oceans Meeting 2017 (apart from the Ministerial Meeting and International Conference) and will take place on the 7th and 8th of September 2017, at Champalimaud Foundation, Lisbon, Portugal. Organised in partnership with Forum Oceano – Portuguese Maritime Cluster, the Oceans Business Dialogues, is a Business to Business (B2B) area to foster networking and debate around sustainable ocean business solutions in all important key areas: fisheries, aquaculture, biotechnology, shipping, ocean engineering, maritime digitalization, ocean robotics, ocean resources, environmental monitoring and protection, maritime security and safety, tourism and leisure.
