Encouraged by the various cooperation activities, the Norway-Japan Marine Science Week 2014 is made as an arena for sharing information on recent achievements, discussing important issues related to seafood safety, our use of ocean and coastal areas and how to develop marine related industries sustainably.

The plenary session in the morning will be addressing government and industry policies and strategies and some of the key areas of relevance to both countries. In the afternoon, the 6 parallel sessions will be going more in detail into some specific areas:
