Over 50 managers, policy-makers and scientists from the fisheries and biodiversity domains and from 17 countries recently gathered in Rome to explore potential roles in the iMarine partnership model to sustain collaborative e-Science in the field of fisheries and new funding opportunities to address societal challenges under the European Union’s new funding programme, Horizon 2020.
