What's it all about?
Interdisciplinary Science in Support of Marine Management
This conference will highlight state-of-the-art knowledge, solutions and prospects to enlarge the scientific basis for an ecosystem-based management of the North Sea. Two main pillars with associated themes will structure the content of the conference:
- 1. Scientific fundament, comprising spatio-temporal patterns and marine ecosystem processes;
- 2. Science for management and policy, comprising ecosystem assessment, assessment tools, and socio-economic relevance
The conference is open to fundamental and applied research, lessons-learnt from both successes and failures in marine management, and innovative measurement and data handling concepts from within and beyond the North Sea.
The conference will equally cover biodiversity and physico-chemical environmental aspects of the North Sea.
