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 Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) in Rome will host the second international conference on the collection and interpretation of traditional and non-traditional fishery dependent data.

Comprehensive and reliable fisheries data and information is needed to provide sound scientific advice, feeding into fisheries management and policy frameworks in order to ensure sustainability in the fisheries sector and future profitable exploitation of fish stocks.

On 27 - 28 April 2009, the Maritime Affairs Unit of the JRC Institute for the Protection and the Security of the Citizen (IPSC) hosted a workshop on research and development in the field of maritime security. The workshop brought to light a number of common research interests, and both sides agreed on widespread interest of working together on basic technologies, in order to foster uniform standards and norms, and hence harmonisation in a potentially world-wide market. Research topics that were mentioned in particular included: wide area maritime surveillance, data fusion and anomaly detection, container security, and satellite AIS.

The 4th "Oceans fom Space" conference from 26 - 30 April 2010 - organised by the JRC, the European Space Agency (ESA), the US Office of Naval Research, Global (ONRG), the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) - is gathering specialists and experts on remote sensing of the sea to address every facet of satellite oceanography, including missions, satellites, sensors, passive and active techniques, calibration and validation, algorithms and models. The emphasis of the symposium will be on the key information provided by satellites to promote a sustainable use of marine resources and to improve our knowledge of the role played by the oceans in regulating climate.
