Abstract
    In the past ten years, Europe has made significant progress in marine biodiversity research and knowledge generation owing to strong support, funding, and coordination of research effort. However, there is still a major knowledge deficit and many of the important programmes and initiatives which have driven this progress have now ended. While biodiversity policy has also advanced, Europe has failed to achieve the biodiversity targets it has set itself. To meet these targets, effective science-based decisions and management will be necessary. This requires good science, strong European research collaboration, enhanced observing and research capacities, and effective science-policy interfaces.
