he OceanPrediction DCC (UN Decade Collaborative Centre) kick-off meeting will take fully online on 11 and 12 January 2023. Announced by the IOC-UNESCO during the UN Ocean Conference in Lisbon in June 2022, OceanPrediction will be officially launched with this kick-off meeting. Hosted on a collaborative platform, it will be an interactive event, centered on community building and connection of different sectors and activities.
The agenda will comprise live conferences, roundtables, and regional discussions, but also permanently opened exposition halls with virtual booths showcasing different operational ocean forecasting systems around the world, UN Decade programmes, and success stories from the ocean forecasting community.
