Making knowledge relevant to the Marine Strategy Framework Directive more accessible
STAGES (2012-2014) overarching goal was to develop a platform to ensure that the knowledge generated through European science and technology could be channelled effectively to policy and decision makers to inform and facilitate implementation of the MSFD (Marine Strategy Framework Directive) and the achievement of GES (Good Environmental Status). The role and input of MSFD stakeholders was central to the project’s activities and to proposals for a science policy interface.EurOcean played a leading role in the identification, collection and analysis of EU and national research activities relevant to the MSFD taking advantage of the wealth of information in the Marine Knowledge Gate. EurOcean also contributed its expertise in science communication and networking.
