We will communicate the results of work done in WPs 1-8 to relevant decision-making and implementation bodies, contributing to building greater awareness about ocean observatories to communities that are involved with decisions related to ocean development and management, but not necessarily directly working with observatories. Key project results will be translated and communicated to stakeholders. This communication will occur via at least 4 science-policy briefing papers presented during briefing events [D10.6, 10.7, 10.9 and 10.10]. Contributions to the papers and the presentations at the events will be made by AtlantOS partners, though occasionally external guests may be invited. The participants for the briefing events will be chosen from the stakeholder communities described in section 2.2. The events will be held in locations that offer the opportunity to engage an interested community such as relevant trade fairs as well as the cities of Brussels, Washington and Ottawa. Participation in order to enable a critical mass of relevant stakeholders to participate.
