This conference will be a unique opportunity to give visibility and showcase first results of four ambitious and multi-disciplinary projects with a focus on understanding, mitigating and adapting to changes in the marine environment. Two projects dealing with the sustainable exploitation of marine biodiversity will also be showcased.

The event will include a panel discussion with high-level experts to take stock and put forward their views concerning how the projects' results could provide sustainable answers also to the societal challenges identified in the Horizon 2020 programme (2014-2020).
