The four Nordic winners (FI, NO, SW, DK) of the FINA award 2022 will present the issues at stake in ocean researches as well as today’s challenges.

The French Institute Nordic Award (FINA) aims to promote cultural and scientific cooperation between France and the Nordic countries and to reward the outstanding achievements of young researchers in this field. The topic for the year 2022 is ”Oceans”, while France held the One Ocean Summit in Brest, demonstrating its ambition to reaffirm and promote its maritime strategy. France and Nordic countries are resolutely turned towards the sea and carry ambitious programs for the preservation of the marine environment, the sustainable exploitation of ocean resources and concerted maritime spatial planning. In this context, FINA wishes to extend its commitment to marine research and promote the work of young Nordic researchers for the oceans. Four laureates from each Nordic country (Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark) were awarded a mobility trip to Brest to discover the French marine scientific research and meet peers.
