New publication: All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, a success story of ocean science diplomacy

A new publication tells the story of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, a true success of ocean science diplomacy where the European Union played a key role, together with international partners along and across the Atlantic Ocean.

The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance builds on the successes of the Galway and Belém Statements, signed respectively in 2013 and 2017 between the European Union and its Atlantic partners.

The EU has invested in more than 40 projects with over EUR 250 million to promote cooperation between European and international scientists from around the Atlantic, making itself a major investor and player in Atlantic Ocean research.

The results of the projects are fit-for-purpose science that will drive policy in the years to come, and will offer an important basis for the next phase of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research and Innovation Alliance, kicking off with the new political Declaration that will be signed by international partners during the 2022 All-Atlantic Ocean Research Ministerial Forum hosted in Washington DC in July 2022.
