To be the leading European think tank in marine science policy; to provide a platform to advance marine research and to bridge the gap between science and policy.

To provide strategic pan-European Forum for seas and ocean research and technology, in order to develop marine research foresight, initiate state-of-the-art analyses and translate these into clear policy recommendations to European institutions as well as national governments.

To serve as an independent non-governmental advisory body, and to transfer knowledge between the scientific community and decision makers, promoting Europe’s leadership in marine research and technology.
