Evolving the European Ocean Observing System (EOOS) – Connecting communities for end-to-end solutions

The EOOS Conference took place in Brussels on 21-23 November 2018 bringing together a breadth of stakeholders contributing to and/or reliant on ocean observing/monitoring activities in Europe from the scientific community, public authorities to industry and civil society.

The Conference built upon the progress made at the EOOS Forum on 8 March 2018 and strengthened a broadly supported EOOS strategy and implementation plan, providing a wider perspective and forward look on the development of EOOS and next steps.
