EOOS town hall at the 1st All-Atlantic Ocean Observing Symposium

On 26 March 2019 at the 1st All-Atlantic Ocean Observing (AtlantOS) Symposium, EuroGOOS organized an EOOS town hall to allow several EOOS steering group members and the co-chairs from EuroGOOS and EMB, interact with the symposium participants and representatives of the European Commission and national funders. The event explained the EOOS progress and further steps for EOOS to enable a strong voice of the European community, towards the European and global integration. The panelists and the audience discussed pertinent questions around the services supported by the EOOS-led integration, the contribution of EOOS to the GOOS Framework for Ocean Observing and international policies, European data gaps, standards and quality control, and the needed simplification of the European ocean observing landscape.
