    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.

    The second Cross Channel Forum is entitled “Science and Governance of the Marine Ecosystem of the English Channel” 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:

    • 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.

    A formal call for presentations and posters will be issued shortly. Information and online registration will be available from: http://www.pegaseas.eu.

    All presentations and posters presented during the forum will be published in as a Cross Channel Forum Report after the event.

    The Promoting Effective Governance of the Channel Ecosystem project is funded through the INTERREG IVa France (Channel) - England programme.
