The objectives of the conference were to present the results of projects funded under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7) "The Ocean of Tomorrow" call 2012 which aimed at supporting the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (2008/56/EC)1 and the achievement of "Good Environment Status" (GES) of EU waters by 2020.

Additionally, the Conference aimed to envisage how these results can contribute to innovative solutions to improve the overall health and productivity of seas and oceans and to capitalise on these results for new research and innovation strategies and actions to reduce pollution on land and at sea and to preserve coasts, seas and oceans.
