EurOCEAN conferences are major European marine science policy conferences providing a forum for policymakers and strategic planners, both at European and Member State level, to interface with the marine research community and marine and maritime stakeholders. The Marine Board has been instrumental in organizing the EurOCEAN conferences since EurOCEAN 2000.
In 2011, the Marine Board, in collaboration with the Flanders Marine Institute (a co-organizer of the EurOCEAN 2010), launched an overarching EurOCEAN conferences website, www.euroceanconferences.eu. All information and outputs of the EurOCEAN conferences are available on this website.
The most recent in the series of conferences, EurOCEAN 2014, took place in Rome from 7 to 9 October 2014. EurOCEAN 2014 was an Italian EU Presidency event, co-organized by the Italian National Research Council (CNR), Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e Geofisica Sperimentale (OGS) and National Inter-University Consortium for Marine Sciences (CoNISMa), as well as the European Marine Board and the European Commission.
