This workshop is funded by the University of Tokyo through its research project, “New Ocean Paradigm on Its Biochemistry, Ecosystem and Sustainable Use (NEOPS)” which aims to advance our understanding of ocean biogeochemistry and ecosystem dynamics for the sustainable use of ecosystem services. It is co-organized by the "Science, Technology, and Innovation Governance" program at the Graduate School of Public Policy.
The world oceans and ecosystem today are exposed to multiple environmental stressors, such as global warming, ocean acidification, hypoxia and direct human activities. As better understanding of responses of ocean biogeochemistry and the ecosystem to these threats is crucial for sustaining ecosystem service for human society, there is an increasing demand in establishing regional to global ocean observing systems and research networks. In reality, however, it is no easy to sustain such the observation efforts, in many cases, due to limitation of resources, and Japan is not the exception. We have this workshop to seek the better strategy in collaborating scientists and policy makers in Japan, particularly to promote future ocean research, through a series of talks and discussion with invited experts from various areas from natural and social science, science policy, public relations, and NGO.
