Following the Copernicus Horizon 2035 Symposium, which will be held on the 16 and 17 of February, the launch of the new phase (2021-2028) of the Copernicus Marine Service will be an opportunity to officially mark the start of an ambitious plan for the next 7 years. This event will gather the main Copernicus Marine stakeholders and communities such as partners and downstream users and showcase the roadmap for the upcoming seven years.

Day 1 will be open to the public. This will be a mix of plenary presentations and round table discussions to present the Copernicus Marine strategy developed for phase #2. Themes such as Copernicus Marine priority actions for the upcoming years, support to policies for a safe, clean and healthy Ocean, integration of a digital ocean, product and service evolution and ocean reporting will be highlighted. You will also have the opportunity to take part in discussions of how the Copernicus Marine Service is dealing with Copernicus satellite and in-situ components, the way we are working with other Copernicus services and EMODnet and how the Copernicus Marine will contribute to and benefit from the UN Decade of Ocean Science.
