National Research Programmes of SEAS-ERA Consortium partners that target human potential are listed in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 includes a survey of EU funding schemes and capacity building efforts in the framework of RTD projects, with particular attention to Marie Curie (mobility) actions. Chapter 3 offers a brief overview of regional (i.e. basin level) programmes and funded projects relevant for the marine sector and the HCB issue. A collection of significant capacity building activities that international organizations and consortia carry out in the marine sector is accounted for in Chapter 4 that reports the experiences of IOC, ICES and BONUS among others. Finally, Chapter 5 presents at global and regional levels the analysis of the information collected through the HCB online questionnaire developed by SEAS-ERA project and delivered to SEAS-ERA partners and their contacts.
The findings of this report represent a milestone to address a capacity building strategy at pan-European level in marine and maritime sector.
