Advancing EOOS – the foundation of European ocean knowledge

Europe needs strong and connected ocean observing capacities. This is necessary to understand, benefit from and respond to the dynamic ocean environment that is essential for life on Earth, especially in the face of ongoing climate change and its implications for European societies. By synergistically federating and further developing its ocean observation capabilities as the European Ocean Observing System (EOOS), Europe will enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of efforts to understand its ocean, seas and coastal waters.

With the new EOOS Strategy 2023-2027, and its accompanying Roadmap for Implementation, the development of EOOS will be developed in line with its Mission to coordinate and integrate European communities and organisations operating, supporting and maintaining ocean observing infrastructures and activities, fostering collaboration and innovation. Efforts through the EOOS Framework will work towards the vision of a European Ocean Observing System that is sustained and meets the specific needs of users.

At this online launch event, the new EOOS Strategy and Roadmap for Implementation 2023-2027 will be presented and discussed by members of the European ocean community.
