Yes ! The Horizon Europe A-Aagora project of Mission Ocean, coordinated by the University of Aveiro, has kicked-off. A very enjoyable start for Cloé Rivière, Clara Jarry and Pierre Strosser in this new collective journey that will support the transformation the Atlantic and Arctic require to deliver ecosystem-based management and the Green deal’s ambition. The kick-off meeting that took place in Aveiro (Portugal) was the right time to initiate collective discussions about the work to be done.
