The CoCoNet Stakeholder meeting in Brussels, 14 January 2016

The message of the CoCoNet Project was disseminated at the End User Meeting in Brussels on 14 January 2016. It was started with the speech of Mr. Ricardo Serrao Santos who is a member of European Parliament. About 40 people participated from European Commission, including DG Environment, DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, DG Research and Innovation, as well as stakeholders from some countries both in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. Our WP leaders explained the main outcome of the project and a short documentary film of CoCoNet was presented.
Discussion took place between the CoCoNet experts and the stakeholders and once again the importance of regional cooperation was stressed.
