EuroMarine is a new European, marine science network. It represents the merger of the scientific communities of three former European Networks of Excellence: EUR-OCEANS, Marine Genomics Europe, and MarBEF. It was designed by the EuroMarine FP7 project (2011-13) as a bottom-up organization and voice of the entire European marine scientific community. EuroMarine counts 66 founding member organisations, 55 of which are ‘full voting’ members contributing to the 2014 budget.
The goals of EuroMarine are to support the identification and initial development of important emerging scientific topics or issues and associated methodologies in marine sciences, as well as to foster new services relevant to the marine scientific community.
EuroMarine will achieve these goals through internal competitive calls for proposals, funded from the EuroMarine budget. It is expected that support for these activities and their outcomes will help to leverage larger projects under European, national or joint research funding programmes.
