No 2017, DEOS Working Papers from Athens University of Economics and Business

Abstract: Science and technology offer an opportunity to reconcile the protection of marine ecosystems with the development of sustainable maritime activities, through an integrated maritime policy. In this context, the European Commission has developed a strategy with the aim of proposing means for better integrating marine research with maritime research. To achieve this, the EU increases the integration between established research disciplines and improves cooperation between all the stakeholders concerned with seas and oceans. This book focuses on results of thirteen projects funded by the European Commission. These projects propose concrete measures and mechanisms to improve the efficiency and excellence of marine and maritime research in order to address the challenges and opportunities presented by the oceans and seas. This opening chapter provides an introduction to these projects by first reviewing the goals, partners, methodology and objectives of the each of the projects.
