"Maritime surveillance: cooperation in practice" is the theme of the upcoming conference being held at EMSA, Lisbon, on 7 May.
The purpose of the conference is to bring together public bodies working at the forefront of maritime surveillance.
To implement effective maritime policies, governments and EU institutions need detailed, reliable, evidence-based knowledge about what happens at sea, in real time. New and innovative technologies are increasingly available, leading to more comprehensive and effective maritime surveillance.
The conference will provide a forum for the exchange of new ideas and perspectives, and an opportunity for maritime authorities to be updated on recent trends and developments. Speakers include representatives from the European Parliament, Frontex, EFCA, EASA and ESA, as well as national administrations.
