Uhinak Congress

The Uhinak Marine Research Unit Congress will host a marine conference from 6 to 7 March 2018. The aim of Uhinak is to get to know the needs of agents facing climate change and to find out the scientific contributions to meet those needs. In order to achieve that objective, Uhinak sets out a multidisciplinary approach that brings together the different stakeholders: scientists, technicians, and administrations.

The conference is aimed at businesses, institutions and organisations in general, that act and see opportunities regarding the impact of climate change on the coast.

Copernicus Marine Service: An EU asset for sustainable oceans

This session is part of the Copernicus Marine week (25th to 29th September): a week-long dedicated event, each day covering different themes, from science to operations, and from R&D to production.

The Copernicus programme is a cornerstone of the European Union’s efforts to monitor the Earth and its many ecosystems. The Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) is committed to delivering state-of-the-art information about the state of the ocean daily, enabling the development of a wide range of blue applications.

15th Aquacultural Insurance & Risk Management Conference

The 15th Conference will follow the format of the preceding 14 successful aquaculture conferences that we have held around the world, over the last 40 years.
