COLUMBUS: Knowledge Transfer for Blue Growth...
The marine environment constitutes two-thirds of our planet and offers huge potential for citizens' well-being, with extensive resources that form the basis for many economic activities. Europe is emerging from the worst financial crisis in recent history and rebuilding our economy demands that we identify sustainable opportunities for jobs and economic growth. The ocean is a source of food, water, energy and raw materials; a medium for tourism, transport and commerce; and, can provide solutions to many societal challenges. Nevertheless the ocean is neither inexhaustible nor immune to damage. Marine and maritime research has a critical role to play in developing our understanding of the seas and advancing technology so that we can grow their economic potential in a sustainable manner. However, key substantial research results are not always known or exploited when they could be of use to marine and maritime stakeholders (e.g. scientists and policymakers).
