Ocean Dialogues 2019 at the science-policy-society: a MARINA – ResponSEAble joint event in Brussels

2019-03-18 - 2019-03-20 All day
Ocean Dialogues 2019 is a joint event between the H2020 research projects MARINA and ResponSEAble - in cooperation with the European Parliament – SEARICA intergroup & IOCUNESCO - on the role of Ocean Literacy and Responsible Research and Innovation in supporting effective Ocean Governance. The event will take place on 18-20 March 2019 in Brussels. On twitter #oceandialogues2019.  ocean-dialogue-logo-update   SUPPORTING EFFECTIVE OCEAN GOVERNANCE The role of Responsible Research and Innovation and Ocean Literacy 18-20 March 2019, Brussels  The aim of the Ocean Dialogues 2019 is to identify solutions for the development of a sound ocean knowledge system that can support effective ocean governance, by addressing challenges such as engagement, co-creation and shared responsibility. Working at the interface between society, policy and science, the event will feed into ongoing ocean-related knowledge and management initiatives. It will provide inputs to the Preparatory process of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. More widely, the active participation of ongoing projects working on RRI and Ocean Literacy will ensure the legacy of the MARINA and ResponSEAble projects. The outcome of the Ocean Dialogues 2019 will be a manifesto that will state how to make RRI and OL effective and successful including in seizing opportunities that the policy framework offers. The policy implications of the manifesto will be presented and discussed at a dedicated policy workshop organised at the European Parliament. Ocean Dialogues 2019 is articulated in: 18 - 19 March 
  • The conference: 1.5 days with plenary, parallel sessions in key marine challenges and sectors, and roundtables and panel discussions
  •  The Demo Deck, where participants will be invited to test tools and products developed by MARINA, ResponSEAble and parallel initiatives for supporting effective research and innovation & ocean literacy
  • The workshop dedicated to Youth & Young Professionals
20th March
  • A policy workshop at the EU Parliament (by invitation only)

    Enhancing ethics and economics in aquaculture using solutions based on IoT and digital automation25 March 2019 12:30 – 17:30
    Rue du Trône, 98 - 1050 Bruxelles

     

    On the 25th of March a new MARINA workshop, organised by Italian CNR and Koys lab will be held in Brussels. It is meant to foster a collaborative debate focusing on methods and technologies for the governance of the aquaculture through a responsible approach to the research, innovation and use of digital technologies for automation.

     Aquaculture is the world’s fastest-growing food industry and it has the responsibility to face the growing global population feeding. Indeed, as the world's population continues to expand rapidly, developing innovative and sustainable food sources is a key priority for Europe. This consideration identifies a key-issue in the marine sector with a direct and huge social impact.

    What about the overall economy, would the use of more expensive systems increase food prices and change the level of access to food? How to deal with the production of food for fishes? How to ensure digital security? Which processes could be used to decrease the harmful chemicals in the water, such nitrates, maybe reducing them to non-toxic levels so to be reused for other purposes? Does it make sense to match other kinds of agro-food productions, such as the emerging aquaponic, listed among the 10 most promising and disruptive technologies?

    This is a challenge and the planned cross-sectoral workshops will drive a path towards the exploitation of methodologies and policies helping the players and policy makers to remove barriers limiting the adoption of Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) – a new approach that considers vital aligning the processes and outcomes of research and innovation with the needs and expectations of society, by leveraging on public engagement, gender equality, science education, open access and open science, ethics and governance.

    Guidelines of mutual research between the marine and the Industry 4.0 sectors will be outlined.
