Strengthening transatlantic research cooperation

​ICES is participating in the 'Atlantic Our Shared Resource: Making the Vision a Reality' event in Brussels this week.​
Published: 16 April 2015

​​​​​​​The event, taking place 16–17 April, is the launch pad for the 'Galway Statement follow-up projects' funded with the first Horizon 2020 Blue Growth calls by the European Union (EU). ICES is involved with seven of these projects, leading work in several areas, such as the ecosystem approach, aquaculture, and knowledge sharing.

ICES General Secretary Anne Christine Brusendorff will moderate a Friday morning session titled 'Showcasing initiatives between Atlantic Coastal States'. Other ICES representatives participating in the meeting are First Vice-President Cornelius Hammer and Deputy Head of Science Programme Wojciech Wawrzynski.

The Galway Statement, which launched the new Transatlantic Ocean Research Alliance, was signed in May 2013 by the EU, Canada and the United States. ICES is a strategic cooperation partner in the alliance.

ICES Council Working Group on Transatlantic Cooperation will meet later this month in Lisbon to discuss further coordination and strategic priorities for collaboration.​
