In this dialogue session the appointed BANOS CSA drafting team will present the outcome of work carried out in BANOS CSA in spring and summer 2019. This includes both the scope of the strategic framework as well as research and innovation priorities for the future programme in support of sustainable use of marine ecosystem goods and services.
ICES science community is invited to enter into a dialogue with the drafting team to provide feedback and consider further research needs and relevant topics that could act as 'connectors' between the Baltic and the North Sea.
The outcome of this session will contribute towards the preparation for the BANOS CSA strategic orientation workshop to be held in spring 2020 and, ultimately, to the completion of the Baltic and North Sea research and innovation agenda in autumn 2020.
About BANOS CSA:
With support from Horizon 2020, 15 leading research and innovation funders of 12 EU member states and associated states surrounding the Baltic and North Sea as well as four strategic partners including ICES, HELCOM, OSPAR and JPI Oceans have come together. In the next two years the aim is to build the necessary conditions for durable coordination of joint research and innovation efforts of these two European regional seas. The future Baltic and North Sea research and innovation programme, as planned in BANOS CSA, is envisaged to start from 2021 onwards. For more info, go to www.banoscsa.org
