Kostas Nittis Scientific and Strategic Workshop, Athens 26-27 May 2015


The Hellenic Center for Marine Research (HCMR) and the PERSEUS FP7 project organize a two day Scientific and Strategic Workshop in memory of Kostas Nittis that will focus on state of the art contribution of operational oceanography (modelling and observations) and its applications in the present and future needs of science and society.

The meeting is titled “Kostas Nittis Scientific and Strategic Workshop: on a coordinated European observing systems strategy – Honouring the forward thinking of a visionary oceanographer” and it shall take place at the Divani Acropolis Hotel in Athens, between 26 and 27 April. The 2-day workshop will focus on:

  1. the challenges for operational oceanography and its applications in view of present and future needs of science and society: key issues that a coordinated European observing systems strategy should address
  2. the present and future of a sustained observing system in the Mediterranean and Black Sea: gaps and needs; and its sustainability, evolution and coordination.

EuroGOOS has been invited to contribute. We will be there to honour the memory of our late Secretary General, who dedicated much of his efforts to making a coordinated and sustained European Ocean Observing System a reality.
