Welcome to the First MERCES Annual Meeting, 20-22 June 2017, Heraklion-Crete (Greece)

The First MERCES Annual Meeting, organised by the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (HCMR), started yesterday. The MERCES consortium met in Heraklion, Crete (Greece) for a series of sessions including workshops, progress meeting and the Open Science Session.

The Project Coordinator Roberto Danovaro welcomes all participants and opens the first MERCES meeting on the restoration of marine ecosystems. After one year of hard work, it is time to discuss the results and to talk about prospects of the project.



The MERCES's Open Science Session was the core of the conference, bringing together the main names in the field of marine environmental restoration, with updates on the scientific activities carried out by our partners, insight from the authorities' side, steering committee meetings and many other contributions. The meeting will end on 22 June. 

Thanks to all participants!
