A collection of documents and deliverables from the ADRIPLAN project (ADRiatic Ionian maritime spatial PLANning), a project funded by the European Commission – DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) under the theme "Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) in the Mediterranean sea and/or the Black sea".

DEVOTES is an international research project funded by the European Commission, within the Environment (including climate change) Theme of the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union.
The overall goal of DEVOTES is to test indicators proposed by the EC and to develop new ones for the assessment at the species, habitat and ecosystem levels, which will lead to a classification status of marine waters. A cost-effective (i.e. by defining monitoring and assessment strategies) implementation of the indicators will be integrated into a unified assessment of the biodiversity.
The outcomes of DEVOTES will contribute to filling knowledge gaps and existing needs in the assessment of the environmental status, within the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, in an harmonized way across the Mediterranean, Baltic, North Seas and the Atlantic Ocean.

EC FP7 EURO-BASIN is designed to advance our understanding on the variability, potential impacts, and feedbacks of global change and anthropogenic forcing on the structure, function and dynamics of the North Atlantic and associated shelf sea ecosystems as well as the key species influencing carbon sequestering and ecosystem functioning.
EC FP7 NACLIM | The North Atlantic Ocean is one of the most important drivers for the global ocean circulation and its variability on time scales beyond inter-annual. Global climate variability is to a large extent triggered by changes in the North Atlantic sea surface state. The quality and skill of climate predictions depend crucially on a good knowledge of the northern sea surface temperatures and sea ice distributions. On a regional scale, these parameters strongly impact on weather and climate in Europe, determining precipitation patterns and strengths, as well as changes in temperature and wind patterns. Knowledge of these factors, and of their development in the years to come, is of paramount importance for society and key economic sectors, which have to base their planning and decisions on robust climate information. NACLIM will contribute to this goal.
Strategies for the gradual elimination of discards in European fisheries (Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement 633 680)
DiscardLess will help provide the knowledge, tools and technologies as well as the involvement of the stakeholders to achieve the gradual elimination of discarding. These will be integrated into Discard Mitigation Strategies (DMS) proposing cost-effective solutions at all stages of the seafood supply chain. The first focus is on preventing the unwanted catches from ever being caught. This will promote changes in gear using existing and innovative selectivity technology, and changes in fishing tactics based on fishers’ and scientists’ knowledge.
The second focus is on making best use of the unavoidable unwanted catch. Technical and marketing innovations will be detailed from the deck, through the supply chain to the final market, including monitoring, traceability and valorization components.
DISCARDLess is coordinated by:
Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
National Institute of Aquatic Resources (DTU-Aqua)
Section for Ecosystem-based Marine Management
Scientific Coordinator: Professor Clara Ulrich
Telephone: + 45 2115 7486 / + 45 3588 3300
DiscardLess is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme (2014-2020) Call number H2020-SFS-2014-2 Topic SFS-09-2014 under Grant Agreement No 633 680.
