Project collaborations


We contribute to the developments in marine science through our external project work and collaborate with a variety of organizations to achieve this.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ICES involvement in external projects is decided based on our project policy and consultation with our Executive Committee (Bureau). For more information see our project policy.

By participating in projects, we:

  • provide scientific support for implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD)
  • support development of the European Integrated Maritime Policy by developing interactions between partners (the research community, industry, regional authorities, civil society and other stakeholders) and delivering data/information to policy-makers
  • develop fisheries management plans for the Natura 2000 sites (Marine Protected Areas)
  • manage datasets
  • underpin cooperation between marine research funding agencies
