The MARS network is a foundation created by, and open to, Europe's marine research institutes and stations. MARS members are world leaders in fundamental marine research and have important research facilities available that allow direct access to the sea. MARS serves furthermore as a forum and as an interest group and communicates with international organisations and the managers of European research, including the Commission of the European Community in Brussels. MARS members are located all over Europe, along the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, the North, Irish, Baltic and Adriatic Seas, and the Black and Mediterranean Seas. MARS aims to provide a platform which helps to delineate overarching marine research hemes, to promote cooperation, and to share relevant expertise and facilities in the marine realm.
