    «The EU Strategy for Marine and Maritime Research» COM (2008) 534 underpins the EU Integrated Maritime Policy. Through excellence in science and innovation, it aims to support a thriving and sustainable maritime economy. It is a key component in reconciling the growth of maritime activities with environmental sustainability and will thus contribute to the ‘’Europe 2020’’ goal of smart, inclusive and sustainable growth for Europe.

    «The Ocean of Tomorrow» calls aim to foster multi-disciplinary approaches and facilitate cross-fertilisation between various scientific disciplines and economic sectors by bringing together scientists, technology providers, industrial partners (including SMEs) and relevant end-users.

    «The Ocean of Tomorrow 2013» will be the third and last cross-thematic call of its kind under FP7. It will involve Theme 2 «Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology» (FAFB), Theme 4 «Nanosciences, Nanotechnologies, Materials and New Production Technologies» (NMP), Theme 5 «Energy», Theme 6 «Environment (including Climate Change)» and Theme 7 «Transport (including Aeronautics)».

    «The Ocean of Tomorrow» also links to the «Horizon 2020» proposal, which acknowledges the importance of cross-cutting approaches
