EuroGOOS AISBL (European Global Ocean Observing System) is an International Non-Profit Association of 36 national governmental agencies and research organisations from 18 EU countries, committed to European-scale operational oceanography (OO) within the context of IOC/GOOS. Founded in 1994, EuroGOOS works in the collective interest of its members, to improve the quality and cost effectiveness in the production of OO services at national, regional and global levels. The establishment of regional systems (ROOS) and strong cooperation within these enable the involvement of many more regional partners and countries in the promotion and development of OO. Through its Working Groups, EuroGOOS develops strategies, priorities and standards in order to establish a concerted European approach to the development of OO to the benefit of sustainable blue growth. EuroGOOS has had a strong involvement in the establishment of the concept of EOOS – an integrated and operational European Ocean Observing System. The EuroGOOS Conference, organized every three years, is a milestone in OO, providing a forum for international scientific experience sharing.
