Europe’s leading Ocean Experts to advise governments

Experts from the European Marine Board, including from Portugal, have identified five key areas of marine science to guide both the research and the science-policy agendas at a European and national level over the coming years. This research will help us to understand how our ocean works, and the role we play in its past, present, and future.

Throughout 2018, the European Marine Board will work on the document, engaging the European marine science community, and the final publication is expected in Spring 2019. The publication "Navigating the Future", the fifth in this series, provides regular pan-European summaries of the current status of marine research, priority recommendations and future scientific challenges in the context of European needs.
