NECCTON Stakeholder Workshop

Co-design of future products


Co-design of future products: 28th-29th of June 2023

Workshop Outcomes

The ocean’s biodiversity supported the livelihoods of over three billion people, providing vital services, including food and nutrient cycling.

Our objective was to enable Copernicus Marine Service to deliver novel products that informed marine biodiversity conservation and food resources management, by fusing new data into innovative ecosystem models that integrated biological and abiotic components, habitats, and stressors of marine ecosystems.

The workshop gathered key stakeholders, potential users, co-designers, and the scientific teams dedicated to the development of products, to refine the characteristics and specifications of the new products.
