Full title: MARine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning leading to Ecosystem Services

Project lead: Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences (IO PAN)

Funding agency: Horizon Europe; Grant Agreement ID: 101060937 (https://cordis.europa.eu/proje...).

Project goal: Our oceans are home to a huge number and variety of species. However, human activities, including overexploitation and pollution, are changing the marine environment. It’s important to understand how biodiversity and ecosystem functioning can be maintained. Τhe EU-funded MARBEFES project aims to bring together 23 research institutes from 15 European countries to evaluate and characterise the links between marine biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, ecosystem services and the resulting society goods and benefits in coastal communities. The surveys will be held across all study areas in a series of Broad Belt Transects from the Arctic, through the brackish Baltic, the marine North Sea coasts and Atlantic, to the subtropical Mediterranean.
