EMB Annual Report 2022

In 2022, the EMB Secretariat moved to the brand-new InnovOcean campus in Ostend (Belgium), where many valuable interactions and discussions have already taken place. Throughout the year, EMB organised a range of impactful initiatives, such as the CommOCEAN conference, a Brown Bag Lunch, and the launch of three new foresight publications. EMB also took a new turn by launching 'EMBracing the Ocean', an artist-in-residence programme which stimulated collaboration between Ocean scientists and artists, leading to remarkable artworks that reflect the deep connection between art and ocean sciences. To learn more about EMB’s activities and achievements, dive into the EMB's 2022 Annual Report.

The EMB Annual Report presents a high level overview of the governance and structure of the European Marine Board, and the activities and events undertaken by EMB and its Members in 2022. It contains information on the decisions of the Board regarding new marine science-policy foresight activities; active EMB Working Groups including their outputs and publications; marine science-policy conferences and events organised or contributed to by EMB; interactions with wider stakeholders and policy makers and collaborations with initiatives such as the UN Ocean Decade and the Mission Ocean.
