|EuroMarine project: "The partners of the EuroMarine project are 17 since we needed to keep the day to day operational group small. However these 17 partners in fact represent the approximately 120 institutes and organizations, of which 1/3 were members in more than one of the former NoEs. For the success of the project it is vital that all interested members of the former NoEs (and present follow-up networks) become involved in the EuroMarine process during the course of the project. We should therefore like to keep you informed and to invite you to all relevant workshops and meetings"(Michael Thorndyke, Chair of Coordinating Group EuroMarine). Further info||
