As the last frontier on planet Earth, our seas and oceans are still relatively unexplored, but they have long been exploited extensively for mineral and biological resources, and more recently for oil and gas. With marine-based scientific activities and ‘blue growth’ now widely seen as sources of new economic prosperity, the need to better manage and protect our European waters is more urgent than ever. The EU’s seventh framework programme supports research and innovation based solutions at transnational and international level.
