3rd EMB Brown Bag Lunch: How marine stations address societal challenges?

On 2 October 2019, EMB organized it's 3rd Brown Bag Lunch Session on the importance of marine stations to address societal challenges. Dr. Matthew Frost, MBA Deputy Director and President of the European Network of Marine Stations (MARS) started the conversation by providing some insight in the work that is being done at the approximately 1400 marine laboratories located around the world’s coastlines.


The focus of this topic was on biological observations, the challenges around coordination and oversight for establishing time-series over large temporal and spatial scales and the relevance of long term observations for addressing some of society’s most important issues today and put forward ideas for ensuring that they are recognised as a vital long-term resource for policy-makers.
