Digital Ocean Forum 2024

13 June 2024

The Digital Ocean Forum 2024 takes place under the auspice of the Belgian presidency of the Council of the EU, at the Palace of the Academies, Brussels takes place on 13 June 2024 (10:00-16:30). The high-level event will be hybrid and open to the public.

President von der Leyen announced, on the occasion of the One Ocean Summit in Brest, in February 2022, that, under the EU Mission Restore our Ocean and Waters, the European Union would build a Digital Twin of the Ocean (DTO) by end of 2024. The European Digital Twin of the Ocean will unlock the door to knowledge and its translation into actions: it is a digital co-creation place at the crossroad of different disciplines. Its purpose is to provide Ocean communities, citizens, coastal actors, scientists, and policymakers worldwide, with actionable knowledge and to support them in their daily decisions and planning, to ensure a healthy and sustainable Ocean. 

The Digital Ocean Forum 2024 will be the occasion to unveil the prototype of the EU DTO and to showcase what the EU DTO, as a Commission public service, can do for the sustainable development of our blue economies and the management of our ocean resources, as well as how it contributes to the implementation of the Green Deal and the UN Decade of Science for Sustainable Development. It will bring together experts, stakeholders, policymakers and interested citizens in the co-design and co-creation of the European Digital Twin of the Ocean.
