The EU-funded DEVOTES project will be holding its final conference in Brussels, Belgium, from 17 to 19 October 2016.

17 October 2016 - 19 October 2016
Brussels, Belgium
The three-day event is split into two distinct sections, with a stakeholders’ conference taking place on 17 October, followed by a scientific conference from 18 to 19 October. During the conference, the organisers will outline the results of the four year project and dedicate the discussion to the assessment of marine waters. Ricardo Serrao Santos, a Member of the European Parliament on the Fisheries (PECH) committee will speak during the conference.

The DEVOTES project has aimed to better understand the relationships between pressures from human activities and climate and their effects on marine ecosystems. The project supports the ecosystem approach to management, and has developed tools to achieve Good Environmental Status of marine waters, relating directly to the EU’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive.
