This event covers the topic of marine science as a provider of new concepts for innovation and technology. The workshop intends to progress the development of a strategy for educating the next generation of marine researchers by inviting feedback from stakeholder groups including young professionals involved in marine science and engineering. The opinion from this group of stakeholders will be of major importance for the European Marine Board (EMB) Future Science Brief as well as for shaping future new initiatives within EuroMarine. Critical information from the stakeholder group will be obtained while opportunities will arise for this group of young professionals to attend the EuroMarine General Assembly and network.
The meeting will be held in Naples on 23 Feb. 2015, back-to-back with EuroMarine 2015 General Assembly.
