European Marine Board

The European Marine Board provides a pan-European platform for its member organisations to develop common priorities, to advance marine research and to bridge the gap between science and policy, in order to meet future marine science challenges and opportunities.

Established in 1995, the European Marine Board (EMB) operates in association with the European Science Foundation. EMB facilitates enhanced cooperation between national organisations involved in marine science (both research funding agencies and research institutes), European stakeholder networks and wider marine and maritime stakeholder communities, towards the development of common positions on the research priorities and strategies for marine science in Europe. 

Adopting a strategic role, the Board serves its Member Organisations by providing a forum within which marine research policy advice to national agencies and governments and to the European institutions and agencies is developed, with the objective of promoting the establishment of the European Marine Research Area.
