Marine Ecosystem Modelling


A Future Science Brief is expected to be published in autumn 2018


Europe has excellent capability in Marine Ecosystem Modelling. However, there remains a mismatch between scientific research and what policy makers need to know. Therefore, a European Marine Board Future Science Brief will highlight foresight activities at European level and communicate community-driven European research needs and priorities to policy makers and wider stakeholders.

Our Future Science Brief on ‘Enhancing Europe’s capability in end-to-end marine ecosystem modelling for societal benefit’, scheduled for Autumn 2018, takes into account key messages from an expert workshop organized on 7 July 2017 (see below) and present case studies and wider initiatives.
