One week till MEMFIS
In a week the first international conference on the future of marine environmental monitoring will take place in Sweden with focus on innovation and sustainability. SwAM and Formas are happy to welcome participants from eight countries to two days of exciting talks, inspiring poster sessions and time for networking.
- Our goal is to create a forum where stakeholders can discuss the needs of environmental monitoring, exchange experiences, present new methods and, not least, find opportunities for collaboration. Together we can lay the foundation for future environmental monitoring and a sustainable blue economy, says Thomas Klein, Head of Environmental Analysis at the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM).
Extensive program and poster session
We are proud to announce that State Secretary to Ministry of Climate and Enterprise, Daniel Westlén, will be opening the MEMFIS conference. In addition, nearly 30 more speakers will enter the stage. Each session will be summarized by a panel discussion. Learn more about the program.
Beside the plenary program, The MEMFIS conference offers a poster session which spans subjects such as citizen science, reduction of ghost gear and different ways to investigate and explore the seabed. See all posters.
Part of the Ocean Decade
The Ocean Decade is the United Nations and UNESCO’s Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. It provides a convening framework for a wide range of stakeholders across the world to engage and collaborate outside their traditional communities. The MEMFIS conference has been endorsed as one of these arenas.
- We hope that through knowledge exchange and cooperation, environmental monitoring becomes both better and more cost-effective. If we can make even more efficient use of current monitoring infrastructure, innovative monitoring methods and analytical resources, we can support a marine environmental monitoring that helps us achieve both our national environmental goals and the global sustainability goals within Vision 2030, says John Tumpane, Head of Department at Formas.
