IORC is an opportunity for the scientific community to come together and to plan the coming decade of international collaboration in marine science and technology, with a view to improving ocean governance. It aims to review progress made in ocean science in the last twenty years, and plan ahead in light of important policy developments such as The Future We Want (UNCSD Rio+20) and Future Earth.
This conference has an interdisciplinary focus, encompassing oceanographic, social science and economic perspectives on ocean research. Sixteen thematic sessions will be organized covering three main topics which are: “Building scientific knowledge”, “Applying knowledge for societal benefit” and “Improving governance and building capacities”.
The wide range of side events and other entertainment, as well as the atmosphere of Barcelona will form a superb backdrop to the networking opportunities and discussion taking place at the conference itself.
