MAF WORLD COST Action invited to the joint event between COST and NSF in New York

Our MafWorld – COST Action (CA 20102) Chair Sergio Rossi Heras is in New York for the joint event organised between COST Association – European Cooperation in Science and Technology and National Science Foundation (NSF)  at the Science Summit around the 78th United Nations General Assembly to promote COST Actions’ contribution to the United Nations’ work.
The main session “Expanding scientific frontiers via international cooperation and networking” highlights the power of international #scientificnetworking and research cooperation. It will help to discover and understand how initiatives like the European COST Programme and the US National Science Foundation Accelnet Program are driving innovation and advancing progress towards #SustainableDevelopmentGoals. During the session, Action coordinators will present successful examples, discuss the model for international networking, and provide opportunities to connect with funded teams. Don’t miss this chance to gain insights and expand your global scientific expertise.

On 25-27th September 2023, SEA-UNICORN COST Action organises a Case Study Workshop on “Marine functional connectivity (MFC) and ecological coherence between the protected areas of the Adriatic and eastern Mediterranean”.
The upcoming edition will be led by Dr. Davide Seveso (University Milano-Bicocca), Prof. Giovanni Strona (Joint Research Center, European Commission, Ispra, Italy) and Prof. Valeriano Parravicini (Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes and CRIOBE, Perpignan, France).
It has been a great beginning for our MAF-WORLD COST Action. After a successful year, we are ready for the second, with some exciting COST Action activity set. 
Branching MAFs are the key building units in marine ecosystems, including the coral reefs. Branching corals exhibit taxon-specific canopy structures and are crowned by morphometric modifications within their canopies, habitats that are under the control of biological and environmental drivers
Marine Animal Forests (MAFs) are built by many organisms that depend either partially or entirely on the heterotrophic uptake of particulate and dissolved nutrients for survival.
