After a review of the current status of the (Western) European oceanographic industries, of the on-going research leading to technological developments and of the developments needed for the marine sciences, efforts to prepare for the post-1992 EC wide single market are discussed. Special attention is given to the EUREKA/EUROMAR initiatives and the EC framework programme for RTD. The economies of the various sectors of the marine industries in Europe are often less profitable than those in Asia or the USA/Canada. This is in strong contrast to the RTD, which is of the highest standard in Europe. The paper concludes with a look at marketing issues - and the need for marketing - if the industries want to survive in the big European and world markets.
