The MARS network is a foundation created by and open to Europe's marine research stations. MARS member institutes are world leaders in fundamental marine research and have important research facilities available that allow direct access to the ocean. 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 and the Marine Board of the European Science Foundation in Strasbourg. 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.
