EuroMarine 2018 General Assembly

The primary goals of EuroMarine are to support the identification and initial development of important emerging scientific topics or issues and associated methodologies in marine sciences, as well as to foster new services relevant to the marine scientific community.

EuroMarine will achieve these goals through internal competitive calls for proposals, funded from the EuroMarine budget. It is expected that support for these activities and their outcomes will help to leverage larger projects under European, national or joint research funding programmes.

EuroMarine also intends to advocate for marine science and to contribute improving the science-governance interface, providing expertise and transferring knowledge.

The Marine Training e-Platform was present under the umbrella of Ghent University as Euromarine founding member organisation, bringing Blue capacity development to the fore.
