Proceedings of the EurOCEAN 2004, European Conference on Marine Science & Ocean Technology, Celebrating European Marine Science - Building the European Research Area - Communicating Marine Science

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

The EurOCEAN 2004 Conference marked the 10th Anniversary and 5th Conference in the very successful series of EurOCEAN / MAST Days Conferences which started in Brussels in 1994. EurOCEAN 2004 brought together over 550 marine researchers, policy makers and private sector representatives to share information and views on a range of marine research issues, to celebrate the contribution that European marine science and technology makes to our understanding of marine ecosystem functioning and its contribution to future economic and social developments in Europe. During the conference, over the three day period, participants listened and responded to presentations from 25 leading European researchers covering topics ranging from Ocean Margins Research to Integrated Coastal Zone Management. EurOCEAN 2004 provided an essential networking opportunity, a critical ingredient of modern research, which was facilitated by ten Ancillary Meetings, extended coffee breaks and an exciting social agenda.
EurOCEAN 2004 coincided with the accession on 1st May 2004 of ten new Member States to the Union. To mark this historic event, a special exhibition describing the Marine Research Programmes / Priorities of the New Coastal Member States: Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland and Slovenia and including Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey was organised and much appreciated by all.
