The CAS-EurASc Frontier Forum on Marine Sciences and Technologies co-sponsored by the Earth Sciences Divisions of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the European Academy of Sciences (EurASc) aims to provide a platform for marine scientists and engineers in China and Europe to share their knowledge and experience of frontier research methods and results, and to foster international and interdisciplinary collaboration.
The Forum dedicates special focus of a dialogue between scientists from China and Europe, which will be also delivered online and open to the general public. The keynote speakers are all scientists who are actively engaged in state-of-the-art research in various aspects of this field.
In order to synthesize an understanding of progress in marine science and technology, and determine priority areas for cooperation that will provide a basis for a future research agenda, the Forum consists of interactive sessions that include different aspects of oceanography, in particular multidisciplinary topics, as well as presentations that reflect new and emerging research on the ocean and society.
The themes of the four sessions are:
  • Session One: The Earth System and the future ocean in a changing climate
  • Session Two: Perspectives of ocean sciences in a changing climate
  • Session Three: Ocean sustainable development
  • Session Four: Cooperation between China and Europe on ocean sciences and technologies
The Forum will be held online from 8:00 to 15:00 (CEST, UTC +2) to accommodate the time difference between China and Europe.
