EuroMarine is organising the event to contribute to the ongoing discussions on the future European research agenda and to identify priorities in marine research area.

The workshop is open to all interested parties, and will have space for working groups and discussions.

For more information please see the preliminary programme below. To register online, please see: https://goo.gl/j4ijUq (open to members of EuroMarine Member Organisations and invited speakers only).



During the workshop, participants discussed scientific priorities in relation to the EC FP9 programme.

During and after the meeting they worked on the draft of an "Ocean Manifesto", previously produced by the EuroMarine Steering Committee (SC).

The resulting draft document (attached) was then submitted to EuroMarine Member Organisations, and feedback from their General Assembly representatives was collected and summarised by the Secretariat for the consideration of the  Steering Committte.

Based on such feedback, a final version of the manifesto was then edited by the SC Chair (Patrizio Mariani).
