The field of ocean science is under great pressure to be simultaneously scientifically excellent, relevant to industry, and relevant to the future of the planet. Ocean scientists also face evaluative fixtures of the contemporary science system, such as the move to open science, responsible uses of output metrics, publishing requirements, and complex public-private funding arrangements. As people gather at the UN Ocean Conference to determine the ‘science we need for the ocean we want’, how can we ensure ocean scientists in all regions are equipped to provide us with the science we need? Does evaluation help or hinder ocean science to tackle the sustainable development goals? Join the discussion online on Thursday, June 30, 2022 at 13.30 (WEST/Lisbon time) for a roundtable discussion. This event is part of the Official Side Event Programme of the UN Ocean Conference 2022, jointly hosted by the Governments of Portugal and Kenya.

Attendance is free but registration required.
