The First International AtlantOS Symposium marked the transition from the EU- Horizon 2020 project AtlantOS to its development into the international All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System – AtlantOS the program.
During a four-day long symposium (25 to 28 March 2019) at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris (France), the EU-Horizon 2020 funded Project on “Optimizing and Enhancing the Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System“ (AtlantOS), launched to deliver on the Galway Statement commitments, celebrated the success of four years of work involving 62 partners from 18 countries and the investment of 20 million Euros. During the symposium, a plan and ambition for the next decade of ocean observing in the Atlantic Ocean Basin to deliver on the needs of the Atlantic communities was presented (Paris declaration). Scientists, policy makers, users, funders, the private sector and NGOs attended the international meeting.
Ocean experts assembled at the First International AtlantOS Symposium support an All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System (Paris Declaration) to address the challenges and realize opportunities for society, the economy, and the environment.
