Abstract
    The development of Europe’s exploration of ocean margins closely mirrors its cultural, socioeconomic and political history. Great Scots, princes and inventors have paved the way for institutional research. Still, when ocean science went global, in the wake of the IGY, Europe played second, or was it third fiddle? North Sea oil would herald Europe’s offshore economic momentum, and become the prime trigger of today’s boosting margin research. Ocean science in Europe is nowadays, in an unprecedented way, driven and controlled by Europe’s turbulent political development. The MAST epos, FP5 with its kaleidoscope of creativity have transfigured the European ocean research community, and raised grand expectations towards the European Ocean Margin Research Area and cross-Atlantic interaction.
