14 French marine universities

French universities involved in marine sciences (research, higher education and observation) decided in 2010 to coordinate their efforts in order to enhance their european investement and efficience in the ERA construction. 15 universities from Channel, Atlantic and Mediterranean Seas are now part of the group.

French marine universities network is member of European Marine Board

 

European Marine Board strongly advocates  for a Mission Ocean under the upcoming ninth framework programme for research and innovation (FP9), the European Marine Board has begun the work on the new instalment of its flagship series, Navigating the Future V (NFV). This position paper will provide robust, independent scientific advice and expert opinion on future seas and Ocean research to 2030 and beyond.

he experts of the EMB identified 5 key areas of marine science, during the NFV Foresight Workshopin November 2017, to guide both the research and the science policy agendas at European and national level:

  • Improve knowledge of the 4-Dimensional Ocean (a volume that changes in the time dimension) and its role in the earth and climate system, including the human component;
  • Assess impacts of multiple and cumulative human stressors to the dynamic, non-linear and rapidly changing Ocean system;
  • Improve understanding and predictability of extreme events through an integrated approach, including natural hazards and climate induced impacts affecting the Ocean;
  • Advance capabilities in ocean technologies leading to wider developments in Information Technology and Artificial Intelligence;
  • Foster sustainability science integrated with marine science as a core component of natural and social sciences.

The European Marine Board (EMB) is in dialogue with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO to consider these 5 key areas of marine science and promote holistic and integrated approaches to develop the common Implementation Plan for the UN ‘Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)’.
