Two new EU publications on current European Marine Research are a goldmine of information for Irish researchers on who is doing what, with whom and where.
Such information is vital to researchers, programme managers, policy makers and research intensive SMEs in order to avoid costly overlap and duplication. Information on such projects is not usually available until the project is completed and the results published in scientific journals – often an interval of several years.
