This workshop is open to anyone interested in research on small-scale fisheries that have links with development, finance and training. The workshop will feature keynote speakers, observations from past events, roundtable discussions, and social events. The event will be hosted in the European Institute of Marine Studies, Plouzané, France.
EuroMarine is organising the event to contribute to the ongoing discussions on the future European research agenda and to identify priorities in marine research area.
The workshop is open to all interested parties, and will have space for working groups and discussions.
For more information please see the preliminary programme below. To register online, please see: https://goo.gl/j4ijUq (open to members of EuroMarine Member Organisations and invited speakers only).
LIFE+ FLANDRE - Flemish And North French Dunes Restoration (LIFE+12 NAT/BE/000631/FLANDRE) is a joint nature project of the Agency for Nature and Forests of the Flemish Authority, the Conservatoire de l’Espace littoral et des Rivages lacustres and the Département du Nord that aims at protecting and managing the coastal dunes between Dunkerque (France) and Westende (Belgium) as a cross-border nature park. The project is co-financed by the European Union through the LIFE+-programme. The colloquial language of the workshop is English, but in the parallel discussions French is also allowed.
Applications are now open for a workshop for European Early Career Researchers on how to work effectively at the Science-Policy-Society interface. The workshop is being organised jointly by NIECS, the European EKLIPSE project and the MarCons Cost Action. Due to the practical nature of the workshop and to ensure good discussions and interactions, only 25 participants will be accepted. The event will run from 17-20 June 2018.
In this workshop, participants will engage with the community to further demonstrate, in the field, new interoperability tools that have been developed and field-tested for ocean sensor and real-time data sharing. These software and firmware tools have been implemented on different platforms and sensors. They are available open-source and now require substantially less engineering time than in the past.
The Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the European Commission is organising a two-day workshop on 15-16 March 2018 in Portorož, Slovenia, on the topic of how to apply maritime spatial planning (MSP) in small sea spaces. Specific challenges emerge in small sea areas, whether they fall under national competence or they are part of a multi-scale, nested approach.
The ecological goods and services provided by the oceans are critical to human welfare. However, sustainable management of these resources is of concern given the complex and dynamic social-ecological systems in which they are embedded. As the effects of both natural and anthropogenic impacts are projected to intensify, it is clear that successful marine resources management for human well-being and ecological sustainability, will require more holistic governance approaches that consider the social and ecological dimensions in tandem.
This workshop gives a challenging view of the upcoming dredging and marine works and their interaction with the environment. Based on a series of illustrative running projects, the actual picture of the negative environmental impacts of dredging activities is shifted towards and inviting and inspiring search for global solutions and added value for the ecosystem.
The workshop will address the challenges companies face in advancing technology readiness levels during initial R&D funding, and in bridging the gap between the end of the funding and reaching the market. Opportunities to overcome these challenges will be discussed.
The joint GEOTRACES/PAGES workshop on the synthesis of geochemical proxies used in paleoceanography aims to establish the strength, limits and conditions of application of a given proxy. There is a vital need for a synthesis of geochemical proxies used in paleoceanography to improve interpretation of commonly used proxies. This synthesis is timely in view of the wealth of new data coming from GEOTRACES and contemporary programs.
