Project Details


The Aberdeen plus interest group joined forces with the Venice Platform group to take further steps in integrating the marine, maritime and coastal research sectors in Europe. The goal is to establish a sustainable and long-lasting partnership forum (European Marine and Maritime Science and Technology Forum), based on shared interests and shared leadership, and to test it on regional seas and pan-European basis. The process will contribute to developing interactions between partners (the research community, industry, regional authorities, civil society and other stakeholders) starting from regional scales to broader issues shared with EU-neighboring countries.

In the project DTU Aqua is representing the European Fisheries and Aquaculture Organization (EFARO).

The project is coordinated by International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES).
