EuroMarine 2020 General Assembly Meeting

LifeWatch ERIC CEO, Christos Arvanitidis, is attending the EuroMarine 2020 General Assembly Meeting (16-17 January 2020) hosted by theĀ National Institute of Biology (NIB) at the Marine Biology Station of Piran (Slovenia). LifeWatch ERIC CEO was invited to join the open session of the meeting to describe how LifeWatch ERIC can support EuroMarine mission and activities, triggering new opportunities for cooperation.

The EuroMarine network has been active since 2014, with the clear mission of generating ground-breaking new ideas and supporting research and innovation for healthy oceans and their sustainable use, from genes to ecosystems. EuroMarine is now recognised as an important forum in Europe to generate new ideas using a bottom-up and interdisciplinary approach.

As we are entering the UN Decade for Ocean Science, the demands for more and further integrated knowledge and enhanced cooperation become more important than ever, and LifeWatch ERIC is committed to playing a key role in establishing synergies and identifying nature-based solutions.


The Bulgarian National Distributed Centre is represented by the  Agricultural University-Plovdiv.
