    News // April 24, 2009

    The European Commission's Blue Book on maritime policy, welcomed by the Council in December 2007, proposed a European marine Observation and Data Network to improve access to high quality marine data and stimulate the maritime economy.

    A roadmap has now been released outlining the current state of the marine infrastructure and possible ways forward.

    Before taking further steps a public consultation has been set up in order to gauge opinion.

    The Commission is interested in opinions from all stakeholders private companies, regional administrations, research establishments etc.

    This on-line consultation should only take about 10 minutes to complete. You can complete the questionnaire either on behalf of your administration or in a personal capacity.

    The questionnaire and roadmap can be found on:
