EuroGOOS SAWG was developed to advise policymakers on RTDI (research, technology development and innovation) priorities in European operational oceanography.
According to its terms of reference, SAWG is working to:
- Continuously identify RTDI needs for advancing prediction and analyses of the marine environment and relate them to society, science and policy;
- Maintain a dialogue between operational science and ocean dynamics studies;
- Enhance the connection between environmental and climate change research and operational oceanography;
- Support educational programs for operational oceanography, strengthening links between science and engineering.
