Life:2005-2008
Name:EUropean network of excellence for OCean Ecosystems ANalysiS
Code:511106
Acronym:EUR-OCEANS
Abstract:The overall networking objective of EUR-OCEANS is to achieve lasting integration of European research organisations on global change and pelagic marine ecosystems and the relevant scientific disciplines. This will put Europe in an international leadership position in this field. The overall scientific objective of EUR-OCEANS is to develop models for assessing and forecasting the impacts of climate and anthropogenic forcing on food-web dynamics (structure, functioning, diversity and stability) of pelagic ecosystems in the open ocean. To reach this goal, EUR-OCEANS will favour the progressive integration of research programmes and facilities of major research institutes in Europe.
