The EuroGOOS Science Advisory Working Group (SAWG) works to provide information and guidance on research priorities at National, regional, and pan-European levels. It helps translate these priorities into possible actions to be performed by EuroGOOS members, ROOS, Task Teams, and Working Groups.

Key Objectives

    1. Supporting cross-cutting integration among ROOS, WGs, and TTs on scientific and technological aspects.
    2. Supporting the implementation of the EuroGOOS strategy and development of EOOS.
    3. Giving advice by identifying scientific gaps and addressing the scientific challenges in developing seamless modelling, monitoring and forecasting capacities, covering full-scale marine space, time and parameters, and serving public safety, blue growth, climate change adaptation, and ocean health services.
    4. Facilitating scientific gaps and cooperation with relevant external communities, e.g. marine environment, fishery, climate change, or commercial blue-growth sectors.
