The project builds upon the concept that there is a gap between what is known through research and what policy makers and the public know and understand about the impacts of Climate Change on the Oceans; and that this gap needs to be filled to help catalyse formulation and acceptance of the necessary mitigation and adaptation measures for the marine environment.
To assess and summarize state-of-the art knowledge of results and public perception of EU research climate change impacts on the marine environment, including the socio-economic consequences;
To organize an international conference to promote and exploit EU research results related to climate change impacts on the marine environment and address public perception;
To organize additional outreach events and activities to obtain wide and balanced information and participation from affected European countries and beyond.
