Since navigating together on our Atlantic Ocean journey, remarkable progress with our marine research and innovation cooperation has been made. We have significantly progressed towards an All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, which joins efforts undertaken with the signing of the Galway Statement on Atlantic Ocean Cooperation (EU - US - Canada), the Belém Statement on Atlantic Ocean Research and Innovation Cooperation (EU - Brazil - South Africa).

The time has now come to define a new strategic direction for the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, and to develop a vision as to how it will deliver on the European Green Deal, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, and the Horizon Europe Mission Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters.

The Forum, which is part of the international dimension of the updated EU Atlantic Maritime Strategy, will also be the occasion to launch the All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors Forum.

The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum is a great opportunity to join and engage with a wide-ranging audience of political leaders and ocean champions including youth, and a host of renowned researchers, entrepreneurs, academics, civil society and many more inspirational speakers.

Outline of the Event
The Programme of the event will take participants through thematic sessions which will feed in the closing session reflecting on the next level of ambition and the way forward for our cooperative scientific efforts in the Atlantic Ocean. Thematic sessions will see short project showcases focused on providing solutions to the challenges faced by our Atlantic Ocean communities, followed by panel discussions between political and community leaders, researchers, industry, Youth Ambassadors and inspirational speakers from along and across the Atlantic, from the Arctic to Antarctica.
