POGO Marks 20th Anniversary

December 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the first POGO Annual meeting, which was held at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, California, USA from 1-3 December 1999.

Over the next twelve months, we will be sharing stories of POGO’s achievements and successes across our three main areas of focus, ie (i) Innovation in Ocean Observing, (ii) Capacity development and (iii) Outreach and Advocacy.  Please follow the hashtag #20YearsofPOGO on social media to read our stories.

During 2020, we would particularly love to share stories from our Alumni, many of whom are members of NANO and avid readers of NANO News!  Please get in touch if you have an inspiring tale of your time as a POGO scholar, or would like to share how a POGO fellowship has had an impact on your career. Did you made professional and personal contacts that resulted in research collaborations? Were you able to share the knowledge gained from your training with colleagues at your home institute? Perhaps your training sowed the seeds of an idea for a new project? Whatever your story, we’d love to hear it!

We would also be delighted to hear from any NN readers who have hosted a POGO fellow.

Please send your stories to Fiona Beckman, POGO Communications Officer (fbe@pml.ac.uk).
