The kick-off meeting

EuroSea started on 1 November 2019. The kick-off meeting is taking place at the Royal Belgian Museum of Natural Sciences (RBINS) in Brussels on 27-29 November 2019, organized by GEOMAR, RBINS, and EuroGOOS.

EuroSea is an EU Innovation Action titled “Improving and Integrating European Ocean Observing and Forecasting Systems for Sustainable Use of the Oceans”. EuroSea is part of “The Future of Seas and Oceans Flagship Initiative” funded through the Horizon 2020 Blue Growth call (BG-07-2019-2020).

EuroSea brings together key European actors of ocean observation and forecasting with key end users of ocean observations. We are an interdisciplinary consortium of 55 partners working together for the next 4 years allocated with a budget of almost € 12.6M. The project is coordinated by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany.

The kick-off meeting offers a unique opportunity to plan the project’s success from the outset. The EuroSea consortium members and many project’s supporters are coming together for a shared vision, implementation, stakeholder engagement and impact generation in EuroSea.
