DEVelopment Of innovative Tools for understanding marine biodiversity and assessing good Environmental Status
The DEVOTES Project (2012-2016) aims at improving understanding of human activities impacts (cumulative, synergistic, antagonistic) and variations due to climate change on marine biodiversity, using long-term series (pelagic and benthic).
Co-creating Ecosystem-based Fisheries Management Solutions
MareFrame seeks to remove barriers preventing a more widespread use of an Ecosystem-based Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM). It will develop assessment methods and a Decision Support Framework (DSF) supporting the implementation of the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD).
