Join the celebrations and debate with Commissioner Carlos Moedas as he hosts a High-Level Ministerial and Scientific event on 12-14 July 2017 in Lisbon, Portugal accompanied by high-level government representatives from Brazil, South Africa, Portugal and many other European countries.

This event will celebrate the launch of the South Atlantic Flagship Initiative between the European Union, Brazil and South Africa, aiming to better understand and protect marine ecosystems and the link between oceans and climate.

A Statement on Atlantic Research and Innovation Cooperation between the European Union, Brazil and South Africa is planned to be signed during the event. The signing of this Statement will cement the ambitions for intensifying our joint cooperation areas, which include, among others:

  • climate and ecosystem approaches;
  • earth and ocean observation and forecasting systems;
  • food security, fisheries management, aquaculture and biodiversity;
  • ocean technology; and
  • human capacity building and mobility.  

We hope to welcome you to the New Era of Blue Enlightenment in July!
