In 2019, the annual Seminar on Fisheries Science of Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries of the European Commission (DG MARE) will be dedicated to exploring the research needs and priorities in the field of fisheries for the next decade. The half-day event on 20 September (8:30 to 13:00) in Brussels will bring together representatives from a wide range of stakeholders in the common fisheries policy, such as scientists and researchers, NGOs, the fishing industry, representatives from the European Parliament, the Council and Member States, and from different Directorates General of the European Commission.
The programme of the seminar will include presentations on fisheries research projects carried out under research framework programmes and other Commission funded instruments. Scientists involved in these projects will shine a light on the outcomes, lessons learnt and recommendations from their work. There will also be a panel discussion, featuring various stakeholders, dedicated to exploring the future prospects of fisheries and marine science and research. Panellists will identify priority areas for future research and debate how to ensure that research findings are reflected in policy making.
The 2019 Seminar on Fisheries Science is highly topical and relevant in the context of the preparation for the implementation of Horizon Europe, the next EU research and innovation programme.
The language of the seminar is English. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided in French, German, English, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese.
