In the first week of October we attended the first general meeting of MarBEFES, in which HuFoSS operates as one of the leading partners. By invitation of the Polish Institute of Oceanography (IOPAN), more than sixty European fellow researchers gathered in sunny Sopot, located on the Baltic Sea.
Over the next four years, we will be working with 22 research institutes on this international and interdisciplinary project. HuFoSS forms the link between the participating researchers and local users of the sea, allowing stakeholders to come to the fore and ultimately benefit from the project results. We look back on a successful meeting with informative sessions and enjoyable discussions. Besides, we met old acquaintances and got to know new colleagues.
We are pleased to work with them in the coming period in furtherance of coastal areas and coastal communities in Europe.
