The creation of the network of excellence MARBEF (Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem
Functioning) aims at integrating research efforts by forming a dedicated group of marine
scientists and institutes and creating a virtual European institute with a long-term research
programme and dedicated links with industry and the public at large. This involves besides
coordination of research the training, exchange and outreach activities in several relevant
fields of science, including marine ecology and biogeochemistry, fisheries biology, taxonomy
and socio-economic sciences. Better integration of research is also required to support the
legal obligations of the EU and its member states and associated states for the Convention
for Biological Diversity, the OSPAR and Barcelona conventions as well as several EU
directives (Bird Directive, Habitat Directive, Water Framework Directive). The network will also
improve links with the large and growing number of industries depending on the sustainable
use and exploitation of marine biodiversity. This includes tourism, fisheries and aquaculture
but also new industries that explore and commercialise marine genetic and chemical
