PERSEUS work featured on the HORIZON 2020 website!

The European Commission presents a spotlight on the PERSEUS project on its research programme website HORIZON 2020.

The article “How to protect our seas” is based on an interview of the PERSEUS project coordinator, Dr. Vangelis Papathanassiou and sets out the results being achieved by the project not only in increasing scientific knowledge, but also in engaging policymakers, the media and general public to take action in protecting our seas.

In the words of Dr. Papathanassiou “our seas have no frontiers. Whatever happens in one country will reflect on the ecosystem of another country, whatever management option is selected in one country has to be communicated to the other. Therefore, ensuring Good Environmental Status (GES) across the Southern European Seas must involve all countries around these seas working together with a regional perspective in mind and in close cooperation”.
