The NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub periodically convenes whole of Hub or specific research theme workshops to progress implementation of its research plans and communicate research achievements. Between 29-31 October, 2019 the Hub convened a whole of Hub workshop designed to achieve the following objectives:

  1. To generate a shared understanding among the Hub researchers about what we have achieved to date and the impact of our research
  2. To progress development of collaborative research outputs for Hub research, and
  3. To identify future research priorities for marine biodiversity.

The workshop was attended by more than 60 Hub researchers and structured to provide a mix of interactions between researchers, including; plenary sessions, smaller working group sessions to progress implantation of projects, and world café style exchanges of ideas and experiences (see workshop program at Attachment A). This summary report provides a reflection from the Hub Director, key points from the three main plenary sessions and links to presentations shared throughout the workshop.
