The Ocean Decade Virtual Series: Co-designing the science for the Ocean Decade

This virtual session will explore opportunities and challenges and discuss best practices to deliver co-designed, solution-oriented research that will lead to transformative Decade Actions with long-lasting benefits to the ocean and society.

The session will be organised in two parts:
Part 1 : What is co-designed, solution-oriented research in the context of the Ocean Decade?
Part 2: How can we foster co-design co-production and co-delivery in ocean research during the Ocean Decade?

This session will be followed by a series of regional sessions in October and November 2020 that will facilitate discussion of regional priorities and needs for co-designed ocean science.
