@EurOcean2014 Rome Declaration

Hot off the press from this year's @EurOcean 2014 conference in Rome. 

The Rome Declaration, a key output of EurOCEAN 2014, aims to deliver a common vision on achieving an ecosystem approach to the management of Europe’s marine resources as a fundamental requirement for sustainable Blue Growth. The Declaration will reiterate the importance of marine research on the policy agenda. Key to the success of the Declaration is support from EurOCEAN 2014 participants and the wider marine science community. The current draft was developed by a group of recognized experts in marine science and policy and representatives of the European Commission.

Feedback and support for the Rome Declaration should be sent by email to the European Marine Board Secretariat at eurocean@marineboard.eu
