By gathering expertise from the five Nordic countries we aim at identifying future opportunities and challenges inthe marine sector where the potential for enhanced collaboration is great as well as being of high relevance to EU.

We foresee that by doing so we will increase our shared capacity to impact science strategy priorities in the years to come, with particular reference to ‘FP9’ and JPIs.
