We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
In 2005 the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO), together with the Oceanography Society (TOS), organised an International Ocean Research Conference to discuss the expected developments in marine sciences over the next decade. Now, almost ten years later, in light of the advances in ocean sciences and technologies and also after important science-policy developments, this new International Ocean Research Conference will discuss and plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine sciences and technology.
The Conference will focus on how ocean sciences have progressed in the past 20 years, and will discuss the coming decade of international collaboration in marine sciences and technology. It will be comprised of keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions.
