The aim of the EUR-OCEANS Consortium is to favor joint initiatives between key Research Performing Organizations (RPOs) and Research Funding Organizations (RFOs) across Europe, to help the community make significant jumps in marine sciences during the next decades. This is implemented by organizing and sponsoring activities which focus on hot topics only and can lead to wider European (FP8, JPI) projects. These activities include Gordon-like conferences, flagship programs, foresight workshops and public outreach. The focus of the Consortium is on the impact of climate/global change on marine ecosystems, and the construction of scenarios relevant to the emerging International Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (ipBes).

The Consortium has over 25 European universities and research institutions covering all of Europe and a broad spectrum of marine ecology disciplines.

The project is coordinated by Institut de Recherche pour le Dévelopment, France.
