The 3rd Euro-Argo RISE Executive Board meeting was organised in Brest on Thursday 27 June, following the Euro-Argo ERIC evaluation. This meeting was dedicated to the preparation of the 7th Euro-Argo Science Meeting, to be held in Athens on 22-23 October 2019. The conveners reviewed the abstracts received and discussed the content of the Science Meeting. A first version of the agenda was drafted and will be published by mid-July on the meeting webpage. In addition, a quick review of Euro-Argo RISE progress was performed, including some reminders from the project office team.
