Member of department awarded an EC FP7 grant for marine research

Dr Peter Jones is part of a consortium of researchers around the EU that has been awarded a EUR 6,568,846 grant under the EC’s Framework Programme 7 (FP7). The grant will support research on the ‘monitoring and evaluation of spatially managed marine areas’ (MESMA). This major study will play a key role in the development and implementation of EC policies on marine ecosystem management, particularly concerning marine protected areas, under the Habitats Directive and the forthcoming Marine Strategy Directive. It will also lead to major contributions to relevant theories/literatures on the ecosystem approach to managing our seas. Dr Jones is leading the overarching work programme on governance issues that will analyse different approaches to actually implementing marine ecosystem management measures, particularly marine protected areas. The UCL grant is EUR 637,839 and the project will run for four years (2009-12). The project is led by the Institute for Marine Resources &  Ecosystem Studies (IMARES, The Netherlands) and involves 18 research organisations from 12 EU and related countries.
