European Marine Board Communications Panel


Mission Statement:

The European Marine Board Communication Panel (EMBCP) provides a pan-European platform for marine science communicators to promote Marine Board activities, to synergize outreach activities and to advocate ocean literacy.

The panel has five EMBCP objectives:

  • Exchange ideas on events, communication methods and best practice;
  • Mutually assist its members in promoting and communicating marine science across Europe;
  • Be (re)present(ed) at major European (marine) science events;
  • Communicate Marine Board activities and outputs at national level through press releases and twining activities;
  • Popularize marine science by advocating more ocean literacy.

The panel participates in conferences and events, to promote the importance of communication and ocean literacy. The MBCP supported the communication of EurOCEAN 2010 and 2007. The panel also organized sessions at events such as European Geosciences Union General Assembly (EGU) 2009, EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2008, a joint session on ocean literacy at the ESOF 2012, First Conference on Ocean Literacy in Europe (2012) and 1st International Marine Science Communication Conference (IMSCC 2014).
