This session will reflect on the European marine science scape in and for climate politics by bringing together science policy and donor representatives from the European Union and selected Member States, representatives from the marine science community, an international civil society organization as well as UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, who recently released the Global Ocean Science Report.
Following short high-level expert statements, the panel discussion will focus on the existing funding mechanisms, expected scientific output production and key structural challenges in the match of marine sciences for climate politics. Based on these discussions, a Science Policy Brief will be developed as a contribution to the further development of the European marine science scape for and in climate politics.
