A success story of Ocean Science Diplomacy

A success story of ocean science diplomacy – a new publication!

The All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance is a science diplomacy effort between countries along and across the Atlantic Ocean. It 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 signed in Washington, D.C. (U.S.) in July 2022.

“This publication tells the story of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance, a true success of ocean science diplomacy that the European Union has been central to with key international players along and across the Atlantic Ocean.”
