This conference will highlight state-of-the-art knowledge, solutions and prospects to enlarge the scientific basis for an ecosystem-based management of the North Sea. Two main pillars with associated themes will structure the content of the conference:

  1. Scientific fundament, comprising spatio-temporal patterns and marine ecosystem processes;
  2. Science for management and policy, comprising ecosystem assessment, assessment tools, and socio-economic relevance

The conference is open to fundamental and applied research, lessons-learnt from both successes and failures in marine management, and innovative measurement and data handling concepts from within and beyond the North Sea.The conference will equally cover biodiversity and physico-chemical environmental aspects of the North Sea.
