STAGES was an EC FP7-funded project that directly responded to a request from DG Environment to put a support action in place to facilitate the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). Under the MSFD, EU Member States are expected to assess the overall status of their respective marine environments and to put in place the necessary measures to achieve Good Environmental Status (GES) by 2020.
The STAGES project was carried out by a consortium of eight partners in seven countries and was coordinated by the Centro Tecnológico del Mar (CETMAR) in Spain. STAGES received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n° 308473.
