EMB presents Rome Declaration and contributes to panel discussion on effective science-policy interface at the 2nd International Ocean Research Conference (17-21 November, Barcelona)

Wednesday 19 Nov 2014: Today, Niall McDonough, Executive Secretary of the European Marine Board is presenting the Rome Declaration at the 2nd International Ocean Research Conference in Barcelona. Niall is also part of a panel discussing successful science-policy interface.

 

 

Titled ‘The science-policy interface: Scientists communicating with Decision-Makers’, the purpose of the panel is to compare approaches and success stories from across the globe regarding how to make science understandable to those who make decisions about ocean management. The active involvement of end users of scientific information, including resource managers, policy-makers, and individual citizens enhances the impact and value of research initiatives.

 

 

Therefore, effective science-policy interface is critical to protecting ocean resources. Other panelists include Alan Simcock (World Ocean Assessment, UK), Carol Turley (Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK) and David Vander Zwaag (Dalhousie University, Canada).
