We are pleased to announce that you can now sign up for this year's North Sea Conference.

The event takes place 23-25 May in the lovely historic city of Bruges, Belgium. This is the first face to face North Sea Conference since 2019 and the excitement around the event is high!

One conference, five events

The main conference, set for 24 May, is themed 'driving green, resilient and digital transitions'.

On this day, speakers and panelists will share their visions for how to fight global warming and recover from the Covid-19 downturn. You will also have the chance to engage in workshops and explore an exhibition to discover North Sea projects. The day will be topped off with the North Sea Video and Photo Contest awards and a networking reception.

The conference also offers two North Sea Region Programme events:

On 23 May, join Scoop the Impact for an entertaining dive exploring the amazing achievements of North Sea projects. On top of this, top experts will share tips on how to engage with the press and policymakers.

On 25 May, the Get Ready event equips you to get ready to apply in Call 2 in the new programme. The day is packed with hands-on tips for you to create a successful application.

In addition, the North Sea Commission will host its Annual Business Meeting and a Youth Council meeting in Bruges during the conference days. These events are by invitation only.
