Pre-meeting information

As agreed during the last Council meeting, DTU-Aqua will host EUR-OCEANS 2013 Council meeting in Copenhagen on 7-8 Feb. 2013 (caution: dates have been changed on 11 Dec. from 6-7 to 7-8!)

This 1.5-day meeting is scheduled as follows:

  • Thursday 7 Feb 2013: 9:15-17:00
  • Friday 8 Feb. 2013: 9:00-12:15

Please note that it takes approximately 40 to 50' to reach the meeting venue from the airport (metro+train). Please see the attached practical information document.

As usual, the meeting will include sessions for scientific presentations, discussion of EUR-OCEANS actvities and scientific strategy. Organisational matters will also be discussed and formal decisions be taken concerning 2013 activities, budget and membership. Because the final assembly of the EuroMarine FP7 coordination action (aiming at the definition of a future EuroMarine+ structure that would integrate or coordinate the networks / scientific communities corresponding to MarBEF, Marine Genomics Europe and EUR-OCEANS) will have taken place in Brussels on 10-11 Dec. 2012, the EOC Council meeting will represent a timely opportunity for EOC members to discuss EuroMarine concrete plans for the launch of EuroMarine+, and adjust EOC plans accordingly.

Meeting programme: see attachement.
