Towards an Integrated Marine and Maritime Science Community

The Forum's vision is based on the premise that no matter how effective and efficient individual science networks may be, their value is multiplied through the synergy that comes with cross-sector cooperation. The vision is a marine and maritime science network which provides a forum for dialogue between Europe's marine and maritime science organizations.

The mission is to facilitate identification, definition of cross-cutting topics across the entire marine / maritime science and technology community; through, e.g.: undertaking foresight analysis, assessing societal, governmental, and industrial needs and assist in mobilizing actors and resources to support identified cross-cutting topics.
