The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum 2022 will be co-hosted by the United States and Brazil, in collaboration with the European Commission, over two events between May and July 2022.
From May 31 to June 2, Brasilia will host the Scientific Event in an online form. This event will focus on scientific meetings and side events amongst the All-Atlantic community and will be an opportunity for researchers, policymakers, funders, industry, academia, and youth to share the important work they have been doing in the Atlantic, collaborate to co-create innovative solutions to today’s challenges and work towards more cooperative and sustainable research throughout the Atlantic.
The Scientific event will have seven thematic sessions (Ocean-Climate; Ecosystems; Pollution; Aquaculture & Fisheries; Observing; Sustainable and Inclusive Ocean Economy; Literacy) and four cross-cutting ones (Data; Infrastructures; Engage; Capacity). The sessions propose a dialogue process for innovative thinking using the best practices and online approaches to share knowledge, create synergies and co-design actions to support decision making in the Atlantic region.
By participating in the workshops, you can inform the Atlantic Community about your ongoing ocean research activity and how this is supporting the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, discuss priorities for cooperation and enhance interactions among existing activities, leveraging their outcomes and impact.
Online side events will be happening from the week leading up to the event (week of May 25) until the week after (week of June 6).
Outcomes from the Scientific Event will be highlighted at the Ministerial Event in Washington, D.C. between the 12th to 14th July 2022.
