The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Forum will define the new strategic direction and political ambitions for the Alliance, which was launched with the signings of the European Union – United States – Canada Galway Statement in 2013, and the European Union – Brazil – South Africa Belém Statement in 2017. In particular, the Forum will define how the Alliance will deliver on the European Green Deal, the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, the Horizon Europe Mission Healthy Oceans, Seas, Coastal and Inland Waters, and a just transition to a healthy ocean and a climate neutral planet.

The Forum, which is part of the international dimension of the updated EU Atlantic Maritime Strategy, will also be the occasion to launch the All-Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors Forum.

The Forum is located in Charlemagne Building, organised by the European Commission, DG Research and Innovation, Unit C4 - Healthy Oceans and Seas, CDMA 1049 Brussels
