  • European strategy on marine research infrastructure: Report compiled for the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructure by the Ad Hoc Working Group on Marine Research Infrastructure, April 2003

Abstract

This review of the diversity, operation, management and co-ordination of Europe�s marine research infrastructures as well as future requirements and investments, reveals the need for:
- better co-ordination and management of Europe�s diverse marine research infrastructures;
- long-term coherent planning of marine research infrastructure requirements and investments;
- mechanisms to facilitate access to existing marine research infrastructures;
- interactive web-based information systems to provide access to information on Europe�s marine research infrastructures

The report recommends the establishment of a Marine Infrastructures Strategy Group (MISG), composed of members mandated by Member States and Associated States active in marine research. This would contribute significantly to the political vision of creating a European Research Area, including a European Marine Research Area.
