Southern European Seas
Clean Seas by 2020
Policy-oriented marine Environmental Research for the Southern European Seas (PERSEUS) is a research project that assesses the dual impact of human activity and natural pressures on the Mediterranean and Black Seas. PERSEUS merges natural and socio-economic sciences to predict the long-term effects of these pressures on marine ecosystems. The project aims to design an effective and innovative research governance framework, which will provide the basis for policymakers to turn back the tide on marine life degradation.

- 23 - 23 October 2014: Workshop on Policy Tools for Marine Governance- Adaptive Marine Policy Toolbox
Our knowledge on marine ecosystems is to date far from complete. Marine scientific communities find it difficult to assist a knowledge-based policy and are reluctant to provide advice to policy makers due to too many uncertainties looming. Marine governance is a complex topic. The present Workshop is organized by PERSEUS in order to launch the new Adaptive Marine
