August 20, 2015 Registration for workshop on the effects of ocean acidification on ecosystems and human societies
In partnership with IMBER (Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystems Research), the Swedish National Committee for Global Environmental Change and the Environmental Committee at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Swedish Secretariat for Environmental Earth System Sciences (SSEESS) organises the workshop ‘Effects of ocean acidification on ecosystems and human societies; Swedish research capacity and prospects for national and international collaboration‘. Its aims is to:
- Investigate the knowledge base, gaps and Swedish research capacity when it comes to impacts of ocean acidification in relation to ecosystems (considering multiple threats) and socioeconomics (including fisheries), as well as management of these impacts.
- Increase the collaboration among researchers in Sweden within ocean acidification related research (e.g. through an active network and/or a Swedish research programme), with linkages to IMBER.
- Inform about IMBER´s Science Plan and activities, and stimulate involvement of Sweden based researchers in IMBER.
The workshop takes place at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Stockholm from 24-25 November 2015. The event starts with lunch at 12:00 on the 24th November.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The workshop is open for researchers affiliated with Swedish research institutions and programmes who are active or interested in biogeochemical and/or socio-economic research related to ocean acidification.
Representatives from IMBER and Swedish funding agencies will also participate.
The workshop will be free of charge, but the number of participants is limited and registration is required.
Last day for registration is 20 October 2015.
Please send an email to SSEESS Senior Research Officer Dan Wilhelmsson for registration, including if you wish to take part in the workshop dinner on 24 November (please indicate any special dietary requirements too).
