DOORS (Developing Optimal and Open Research Support for the Black Sea - ) is a €9 million European Union research project that brings together citizens, science and industry for the critical regeneration of the Black Sea, stimulating a new wave of "blue economy" opportunities. We bring together the best expertise and technology from 37 institutions from the Black Sea region and European countries to address the human and climate change impacts on the marine ecosystem.

The work over the next 4 years aims to harmonise scientific and policy approaches from all Black Sea countries. We will have access to state-of-the-art satellite technology that will allow us to understand the entire Black Sea as never before in history. Common solutions and policy approaches will be identified to solve environmental problems anywhere in the region. DOORS work will open the region to unparalleled economic opportunities in areas such as tourism, technology, fisheries, shipbuilding, shipping, education, renewable energy and more.
