CoCoNet – Putting Together Seas with Romania as Work Package Leader for Black Sea Pilot Project

CoCoNet is the abbreviation for a research project called "Towards COast to COast NETworks of marine protected areas, coupled with sea-based wind energy potential" funded under the OCEAN.2011-4 theme of the European Union's Seventh Framework Program (better known as FP-7 project). This collaborative project comprises 39 partner institutions from 22 countries, including Romania. Environmental policies focus on protecting habitats that are considered valuable because of the biodiversity they encompass. Such policies also aim at producing energy in cleaner ways. The establishment of Marine Protected Area (MPA) networks and installation of Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) are important ways to achieve these goals. The scope of this paper is to highlight work packages (WP) established within CoCoNet Project – on one hand and, on the other hand, pointing out Romanian partnership to CoCoNet Project.
