Today, in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the EU, the EurOCEAN conference concluded with the adoption of the Rome Declaration. The EurOCEAN 2014 conference brought together more than 300 marine scientists from a broad range of disciplines with policymakers, industry and NGOs from almost all the EU Member States. The PERSEUS scientific team was active in the conference as speakers, panelists and participants, helping to give critical input to the declaration itself.

Highlighting the importance of Blue Growth and of commercially-driven, problem-oriented research, EurOCEAN 2014 equally emphasized that a growing and sustainable maritime economy will also require a much greater knowledge and understanding of marine ecosystem functioning and resilience. A key output of EurOCEAN 2014 is the development of a common vision on achieving an ecosystem approach to the management of Europe’s marine resources as a fundamental requirement for sustainable Blue Growth. This common vision was delivered on 08 October in the Rome Declaration, a consensus view of the EurOCEAN 2014 participants, reflecting that of the European marine science community.
