This International Conference will bring together the ocean scientific community to share achievements and outline future prospects in marine science during the next decade. In line with the recent advance in ocean science and technologies and important science- policy developments such as The Future we want (UNCSD Rio+20) and the Horizon 2020 (EC), this International forum will bring together scientists, industry and policy representatives to address key research topics and promote international collaboration in marine science and technology for the sustainable management of the sea.

This conference will be a forum to assess priorities and to develop management actions, as well as expand knowledge on new research topics and technologies.
The conference is organized by the Intitute of Oceanology - Bulgarian Academy of Science (IO-BAS) in celebration of its 40th anniversary. UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission is one of the co-organizers, participating in the International Scientific and Organizing Committes.
