Abstract:
Recognising the need for improved co-ordination between European marine science organisations (both research institutes and funding organisations) and for the development of a strategy for marine science in Europe, the European Science Foundation (ESF), in association with the European Commission, established the ESF Marine Board in 1995 to address these issues.
To date, the principal achievements of the Marine Board - ESF have been to:
- facilitate the development of scientific strategies (organising and sponsoring workshops and conferences);
- improve access to infrastructure and the shared use of equipment;
- advise on strategic and scientific policy issues at the European level;
- publish position papers on key topics.

In developing its objectives, the Marine Board focuses its activities around four main themes.
Forum: bringing together member organisations to share information, to identify common problems and, as appropriate, find solutions, to develop common positions, and to co-operate on scientific issues.
Strategy: identifying and prioritising emergent disciplinary and interdisciplinary marine scientific issues of strategic European importance, initiating analysis and studies (where relevant, in close association with the European Commission) in order to contribute towards a European strategy for marine research.
Voice: expressing a collective vision of the future for European marine science in relation to developments in Europe and world-wide, and improving the public understanding of science in these fields.
Synergy: fostering European added value to component national programmes, facilitating access and shared use of national marine research facilities, and promoting synergy with international programmes and organisations.

Whilst the emphasis is on science, the Marine Board fully recognises the increasing interdependence between science and technology and, as a result, promotes the appropriate technological developments for the achievement of its scientific objectives.

With its current membership of 25 marine research organisations from 17 European countries, the Marine Board has the appropriate representation to provide a unique forum for marine science in Europe and world-wide.
