A meeting of Marine Station/Institute Directors is being held at HMRC, Crete, November 27th to the 29th 2018.

The European network of Marine Stations (MARS) has been bringing together marine stations and institute directors for over two decades (since 1995) and the meeting will focus on the new MARS strategy entitled, “A new Strategy for MARS: Supporting a Decade of Marine Science in Europe and Beyond”, which was developed in the context of the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). Other areas for discussion include the World Association of Marine Stations (WAMS); general science and policy updates; and models of sustainability for marine stations and institutes; as well as the chance to network with directors from across Europe and beyond.
