The 3rd DEVOTES Annual Meeting was hosted by the partner IMAR (Instituto do Mar) and took place in Lisbon (Portugal) from 1st to 4th December.
57 participants from 21 research institutes, academia and SME from different countries met to analyse the progress of DEVOTES and plan the next year’s activities and goals. Two members of the Advisory Board and 14 stakeholders have also attended the meeting, giving positive feedback on the work done by the Consortium so far and actively contributing to the discussion with a wide perspective.

The most important results of each Work Package were presented during the opening talk given by the Coordinator, À. Borja (AZTI, Spain)and the plenary discussions were focussed on:

– Indicators for MSDF,

– Human pressures and impacts on biodiversity

– Monitoring and cost-effectiveness

– Assessment and integration.

The meeting was divided into plenary talks, cross cutting sessions and internal meetings focused on specific task and publications. The ad-hoc meetings were excellent opportunities for a fruitful interaction among partners, resulting in the planning of many joint publications.

Meeting minutes and presentations are available in the Partners’ area.
