Invitation to join on April 28, 2021 the B2BI North Atlantic—Arctic Science Initiative Seminar Series

About the seminar

Fisheries and other human activities – inclusive processes, expertise and evidence provided in the North East Atlantic, and adjacent seas

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) is an intergovernmental marine science organization, meeting societal needs for impartial evidence on the state and sustainable use of our seas and oceans.

​​​Our goal is to advance and share scientific understanding of marine ecosystems and the services they provide and to use this knowledge to generate stat

e-of-the-art advice for meeting conservation, management, and sustainability goals. We are a network of nearly 6000 scientists from over 700 marine institutes in our 20 member countries and beyond. Over 2500 scientists participate in our activities annually.

Through strategic partnerships our work in the Atlantic Ocean also extends into the Arctic, the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea, and the North Pacific Ocean.

 

The Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research is associated with B2BI and wants to support it as and when possible.

The Joint North Atlantic-Arctic Ocean Science Programme Initiative (B2B)

The Joint North Atlantic-Arctic Ocean Science Programme Initiative (B2B) is evolving from within the scientific community to innovatively transform international scientific research and related education programs in an era with new expectations for science in the 21st century. B2B is proposed as a “Programme Initiative” with “Priority Projects” in the spirit of IGBP, WCRP, and other international scientific programs, with an explicit scope and charter. An ad hoc B2B Steering Committee has evolved that engages several dozen scientists, science academies and other relevant experts. The B2B team is seeking support among key individuals in the research and policy-interested communities within the B2B nations. The Norwegian Scientific Academy for Polar Research is associated with the project and wants to support is as and when possible. Academy members who are interested in the project should contact the secretariat: post@polar-academy.com
