PERSEUS produced a Policy Brief, which highlights the major scientific findings of the project and sets out evidence-based recommendations for policy and decision makers in the Southern European Seas (SES) based on work carried out in several areas
of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.
Additionally, an atlas of riverine inputs to the Mediterranean was produced during the project, in cooperation with UNEP/MAP. PERSEUS – UNEP/MAP Report, (2015). Atlas of Riverine Inputs to the Mediterranean Sea. ISBN: 978-960-9798-17-4
A PERSEUS international workshop on jellyfish was held in Cadiz, on 2-3 March 2015, entitled "Coming to grips with the jellyfish phenomenon in the Southern European and other Seas: research to the rescue of coastal managers." It was co-funded by IOC-UNESCO and CEIMAR. The abstracts from the workshop are available online here.
Book of Abstracts
Within the project's framework, a Scientific Workshop was held in Athens, at the end of the 2nd GA meeting in January 2014. All submitted abstracts have been compiled into a Book of Abstracts.
The 2nd Scientific Workshop, to be held in Marrakesh in December 2014, has also already produced the Book of Abstracts.
