The Open Science Meeting (OSM) and the associated Young Scientists Meeting (YSM) are the premier scientific events of Past Global Changes (PAGES), a core project of Future Earth and a scientific partner of the World Climate Research Programme. The OSM is an international and multi-disciplinary platform for sharing latest research results on past global changes and the venue for discussing and defining the role of past global change science in the coming years
BIOPROSP is held every two years with a focus on bioprospecting from marine environments. It takes place in the capital of the Arctic world, a university town in northern Norway called Tromsø. The conference was first organized in 2002 and over the past 14 years has become one of the most knowledge-rich conferences in the field of marine bioprospecting, attracting top talent from Europe and abroad. The next BIOPROSP Conference will take place 8-10 March 2017, at UiT - The Arctic University of Norway.
The Ecosystem Studies of Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) is a regional program of the Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research (IMBER) project. Its objectives are to understand how climate variability and climate change affect the marine ecosystems of Subarctic and Arctic seas and their sustainability, and in turn, how changes in these marine ecosystems affect humans.
Arctic Futures brings together people from a wide variety of backgrounds who have an interest in the Arctic. The Symposium is an annual event which promises insight and dialogue on current issues facing the Arctic.

SPONGE, CORALS AND THE WORLD is an international symposium on marine sciences, blue business and society.
The symposium is a joint initiative of three EC-funded projects: BluePharmTrain, Atlas and SponGES to bring together major scientific, industrial and societal stakeholders in blue biotechnology because effective transfer of novel discoveries in marine biotechnology can greatly improve Europe’s capacity, to address the needs of the society of the future and to generate new commercial opportunities.
Information regarding this event will be published soon.
The Cooperation in Fisheries, Aquaculture and Seafood Processing (COFASP) final conference entitled "Cross border research, a great change for the Marine and Maritime sector" will take place on Thursday 8 December 2016 in Wissenschaftszentrum Kiel, Fraunhofer Straße, 24118 Kiel, Germany. This event will provide an overview of the COFASP main outcomes, including a general introduction about the scope and achievements, a presentaton of the COFASP Strategic Research Agenda, challenges for the community, the uptake and further development of COFASP outputs and more.
The STRONGMAR (Strengthening Maritime Technology Research Center) conference will take place in Porto, Portugal on the 17 November 2016. The registration is free but mandatory.
Topics covered during the conference will include:
Over the past five years, the European Commission and EU Member States have made large investments in research and technological development to prepare for a world in which deep-sea mining is a reality. Projects have covered basic research into deep-sea habitats, the potential environmental and societal impacts of deep-sea mining as well as the technologies to enable mining.
