Launch of EU 7th Framework Programme on Managed Marine Areas

Peter Jones leads governance programme

Launch of EU 7th Framework Programme on Managed Marine Areas

The 'Monitoring and evaluation of spatially managed marine areas' (MESMA) project starts on 1 November 2009 (See news article below, September 2008). Dr Peter Jones is part of a consortium of 18 research organisations from 12 countries, led by the Netherlands Institute for Marine Resources & Ecosystem Studies (IMARES), awarded a EUR 6,568,846 grant under the European Commission's 7th Framework Programme. The study will play a key role in the development and implementation of European policies on marine ecosystem-based management,  particularly through spatial planning initiatives under the Marine Strategy Directive. It will also contribute to theoretical developments relating to the ecosystem-based approach to managing our seas. Peter is leading the overarching work programme on governance issues, analysing different approaches to implementing marine spatial planning. The UCL grant is EUR 665,991, and the project will run for four years (2009-12).
