Breakout Session - Identify CMSP research focus areas and Oregon’s unique ability to address key questions
Session facilitated by Dave Hansen, Program Leader, Oregon Sea Grant Extension

Purpose: This session will build off of the information provided by the guest speakers and encourage participants to reflect on research ideas that could direct future science endeavors in Oregon academia that will support responsible ocean planning.

Questions:  

1. What are the top three to five overarching scientific and research needs that will help advance ecosystem-based marine spatial planning?
        - Think about overarching research questions for the northwest to focus on that are important to advancing responsible ocean planning. 
        - Think about social, economic, biological, and physical sciences.
        - What is realistically attainable?
        - Note that this is not just about data and data sets.

2. What are the attributes of Oregon that make it uniquely qualified to serve as a research test bed for examining some of these overarching questions?

45 minutes – In group brainstorming
Convene into groups of about 15 people. Participants will be given the guiding questions and asked to brainstorm amongst group members to develop ideas for future research areas. These ideas will be recorded by a volunteer and then reported to the larger group by a selected spokesperson. 

45 minutes – Reporting back and Open discussion
Spokespersons will report the top 3-5 ideas that their group developed.  The facilitator will guide this section and a note-taker will record responses. After the first round of ideas is presented, the facilitator will solicit any additional ideas that had not already been presented in the reporting back period – e.g., are there any big interdisciplinary questions that were not identified?

Summary of Day 1                                                                                         

 

Oregon Academic Faculty Presentations                      
Researchers and representatives of Oregon institutions will present current research efforts, areas of expertise, or program overviews with consideration of how it may apply to CMSP.  Presentations will be given in rapid fashion (one slide and 4 minute time limit).  These presentations will then feed into the breakout session that follows on identifying capacity and collaborative opportunities, and developing strategies and a framework for the role of academic science in state and regional CMSP.

Breakout Session - Assessing Oregon Academic Capacity and Identifying Collaborative Opportunities
Session facilitated by Sam Chan, Oregon Sea Grant Extension and Lisa DeBruyckere, President, Creative Resources Strategies

Purpose: The purpose of this breakout session will be for members of represented institutions to assess their collective strengths and weaknesses to contribute to ocean planning and management. Groups will also identify opportunities for their institution, barriers to taking advantage of them, and elements of a framework for informing state and regional ocean management.

Questions:
1. What barriers exist to achieve effective communication within and among disciplines, academic institutions, and state and regional agencies and entities?
        - What strategies and actions could help address these barriers?

2. What opportunities exist for collaboration (research, funding, shared resources, e.g. facilities)?
        - What strategies and actions could realize these opportunities?

3. Describe elements of a framework that would better enable academic scientists and researchers to inform state and regional management of ocean resources.
        - What steps need to be taken to build that framework?

45 minutes – In group brainstorming
Convene into groups of about 15 people. Participants will be given the guiding questions and asked to brainstorm amongst group members to develop ideas to improve collaboration, and outline a framework for moving forward. These ideas will be recorded by a volunteer and then reported to the larger group by a selected spokesperson.  

45 minutes – Reporting back and Open discussion
Spokespersons will report a summary of each group’s findings.  The facilitator will guide this section and a note-taker will record responses. After the first round of ideas is presented, the facilitator will solicit any additional ideas that had not already been presented in the reporting back period. Are there any big interdisciplinary questions that were not identified?

 

Next Steps

  • Report of the workshop will be provided to state agencies, elected officials, regional entities, and others, and will be presented at ASLO Ocean Sciences 2012
  • Presentations (pending approval) and the workshop report will be posted on the Marine Council Website
  • Depending on recommendations of group – create a listserv, website, or virtual center to facilitate collaboration
  • Future expanded workshop to involve the broader Oregon and northwest community
