Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs)

Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs) are young Ocean researchers and strong advocates of the Ocean’s future. They are diverse, each having their own innovative ideas and perspectives. To reach the ambitious goal of a sustainable Ocean, ECOPs are needed more than ever. They bring spotlight on the importance of the future climate scenarios, advocate for marine conservation and jointly design the solutions to tackle the challenges facing our planet and Ocean. They will also become the Ocean leaders of tomorrow.

The European Marine Board Young Ambassadors, together with the EMB Secretariat, are setting up a network to connect the Early Career Ocean Professionals within EMB member organizations.
