EUROPEAN ARTIFICIAL REEF RESEARCH NETWORK

Objective



Objectives:
To hold a 5 day "conference/workshop" on the topic of artificial reef research in the EU. This will take place in Ancona within 12 months of the start of the project. The conference will be followed by four, 3 day, working group meetings within the next 18 months held in laboratories within the EU. The conference and workshops, have the following objectives:

(a) To promote increased collaboration between current artificial reef programmes throughout Europe (EU), both marine and freshwater.
(b) To summarise results made within European (EU) artificial reef research undertaken to date and reach a consensus of opinion on given issues.
(c) To promote awareness of issues (socioeconomic and management) within the artificial reef scientific community, and encourage consideration of these aspects in developing future research proposals.
(d) To produce a detailed programme of coordinated research for future artificial reef research in the EU and to identify the research groups best suited to carry-out work in a given area of interest.
(e) To report these findings and recommendations fully to the EC.
(f) To initiate a reference library of European publications on artificial reef research. The concerted action will provide a focus for (1) collaboration with other existing working groups interested in artificial reefs within geographic Europe and (2) communication with reef workers in other parts of the world, such as USA, Japan, Taiwan and SE Asia.
