Marine Management

Marine Management is the newest research area in IFM. Together with the University of Liverpool (coordinator), the Hellenic Centre for Marine Resarch and other research partners IFM participated in the ODEMM project that aimed at developing a set of fully-costed ecosystem management options that would deliver the objectives of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive, the Habitats Directive, the European Commission Blue Book and the Guidelines for the Integrated Approach to Maritime Policy. The key objective is to produce scientifically-based operational procedures that allow for a step by step transition from the current fragmented system to fully integrated management.
