We have always relied on seas for food, recreation, economic opportunities, transport, as a waste dump and so on. Now, with the climate change in progress and the intensive human exploitation, the marine ecosystem in Europe is in serious danger. We will be able to reverse this trend only if citizens, researchers, policy makers, industrial and societal actors work together.

The MARINA project will engage these actors in order to share knowledge, include the citizens’ vision and societal needs, create a synergy between research&innovation and the environmental safeguard. The Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) process will achieve these objective: RRI is a new approach to science whereby all actors engaged can effectively make their voice heard in the whole research process and share their ideas with those who develop new solutions. Thanks to the on field experience, MARINA project will stregthen this systematic approach, making it transferable and reproducible for any RRI thematic domain.


Know more about RRI and MARINA project impact in the section Societal Objective.

MARINA project will include stakeholders engagement actions in order to ease actors cooperation: the MARINA Knowledge Platform, the organization of Mobilisation and Mutual Learning Workshops, exhibitions and more.
