Development of Advanced Marine Technology (EUROMAR)

Duration: 01.01.1999-31.12.2004 (72 months)

Coordination: Agência de Inovação

Partners: Portugal, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Spain, Sweden, The Netherlands, Turkey, United Kingdom, Greece, Italy, Norway, Croatia

Funding Entity: EU - Programme EUREKA

EUROMAR is an "umbrella" within the overall EUREKA framework. It is devoted to creating and supporting EUREKA projects, which aim to protect, exploit and manage marine resources sustainably. Euromar liaises with other European and International marine science initiatives such as the European Commission's marine research programme and GOOS (the UN Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission's "Global Ocean Observing System"). These programmes, demanding as they do the acquisition and processing of large quantities of marine data, will create further demand for new marine technologies. EUROMAR has already created the channels through which these scientific requirements can be translated into technological specifications.
