Invitation to the Forum Science and Governance of the Marine Ecosystem of the Channel Caen, 2-3 July 2014

Here is an open invitation to this year's Science and Governance of the English Channel conference due to take place in Caen this July.


The Promoting Effective Governance of the Channel Ecosystem project (PEGASEAS) is hosting three Cross Channel Forum events in 2014. These events are designed to bring together policy-makers, practitioners, stakeholders, and scientists to advance the governance of the Channel ecosystem using natural and social science.

We are proud to announce that the second Cross Channel Forum is entitled “Science and Governance of the Channel Marine Ecosystem” and will be held in Caen on the 2nd and 3rd of July 2014. This event is being organised by scientists from IFREMER Boulogne-sur-Mer and the University of Caen Basse-Normandie and will focus on integrating marine science into the governance of the Channel ecosystem.

The Forum will provide opportunities for: s


  • Scientists to contribute to a trans-disciplinary analysis of the Channel marine ecosystem by sharing their results and conclusions.
  • Stakeholders and policy-makers to hear about recent research into the Channel marine ecosystem and consider how this can support the governance of the Channel.


Session tittles:


  • The Channel ecosystem: actual state, tools, results and its governance 
  • The present and future challenges in the Channel: Science and Governance 
  • Toward integrated management of the Channel: what are the future research and action in order to improve the Channel governance?


Workshop topics:


  • Partnerships and improvement of the management of the marine ecosystems. 
  • Management of the human activities and governance at multiple scales 
  • Participation and involvement of stakeholders and use of the data/information
