Abstract:
"Project Sea" was followed by two series of Concerted Research Actions (CRA) in marine sciences.

From 1977 to 1981, the Concerted Research Action "Oceanology" with a budget of 3,4 MEURO and from 1982 to 1993, the Concerted Interuniversity Research Action "North Sea" with a budget of 5,3 MEURO. These research actions which, unlike "Project Sea", had no central coordination system, promoted sustained research in a number of laboratories and facilitated the expansion and improvement of results already achieved.
