CIGESMED was a SeasEra project (E.U. FP7 ERA-NET) Towards Integrated Marine Research Strategy and Programmes, supported by the E.C. under Seasera’s theme 3: Development of indicators and science support and management tools for the determination of Good Environmental Status in the Mediterranean Sea.

CIGESMED was funded for 3 years (2013-2016) by ANR (France), GSTR (Greece) and TÜBITAK (Turkey). It involved 5 partners and 10 laboratories from these countries, as well as a SME, marine parks and stakeholders. A Board of External Advisors (BEA), consisting in independent scientists, stakeholders and policy-makers met at an annual basis, and aims at providing advices on all aspects of the execution of the project.

CIGESMED was coordinated by the IMBE (Institut Méditerranéen de Biodiversité et d’Ecologie marine et continentale), a unit of research of Aix-Marseille University, CNRS-INEE, IRD and University of Avignon [PI: Jean-Pierre Féral]
