MarCons Final Conference

The MarCons Final Conference will be virtual, and held on 15 October 2020.

The objective of MarCons’ final event is to bring together scientists, policy makers, environmental agencies, NGOs, and other stakeholders to promote common understanding and to bridge the gap between science, management and policy in marine conservation.

To that aim, four panels will be assembled including representatives of the MarCons consortium, policy makers and relevant stakeholders to actively discuss and interact with a wide audience on the following four topics:

  • Assessing multiple threats to marine biodiversity
  • Improving EU conservation policies and management practices
  • Improving data availability and accessibility
  • Marine conservation and blue economy [sustainability] - challenges and opportunities
