Sustainability of Marine Ecosystems Through Global Knowledge Networks (SmartNet) seeks to establish a global knowledge network for ocean science by strengthening and expanding the collaboration of ICES, PICES and partner organizations, with emphasis on areas of mutual research interest including climate change, fisheries and ecosystem-based management, social, ecological and environmental dynamics of marine systems, coastal communities and human dimensions, and communication and capacity development.
The two-hour webinar "Satellite Activity by ICES and PICES: Establishing Global Knowledge Networks in SmartNet" will be held online on Wednesday 1 June, 16:00 – 18:00 CEST. The webinar will introduce SmartNet to the Decade community and provides initial networking opportunities with potential partner organizations, stakeholders, end users, and Decade-endorsed activities with common goals.
The event starts with ignite talks from our set of panellists followed with open discussion on ideas for specific activities and partnerships and capacity sharing opportunities.
