Marsnetwok – European Scientific Diving Panel
The European Scientific Diving Panel (ESDP) was first constituted as the European Scientific Diving Committee in 2007 and endorsed as a European Marine Board (EMB) Panel in 2008, and this until April 2017. Since October 2017, becoming a panel of the MARSnetwork, the ESDP still acts as an operational platform to advance underwater scientific excellence and to promote and implement a practical support framework for occupational scientific diving related activities. The ESDP relies on the organizational support provided by the MARSnetwork, including secretariat and visibility provided by this link.
