Message from Bedruthan

High-level message from a workshop which brought together 50 experts from a broad range of disciplines to discuss the complex interactions between the marine environment and human health (March 2014).

The Bedruthan workshop unanimously called for a coordinated, transnational and interdisciplinary Oceans and Human Health research programme in Europe. Research should be solutions-oriented, supporting health and wellbeing promotion and disease treatment, and informing maritime, environment, public health and innovation policy.The workshop was convened by the European Centre for Environment and Human Health (University of Exeter) and the European Marine Board, with organizing support from Ifremer, the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) and Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
