On 9 of March 2024 the Center for Coastal and Marine Studies (CCMS) celebrates its sixth anniversary! The past six years of success, challenge, and learning has been an incredible experience! We have accomplished so much, but the best is yet to come!

Happy 6 Years


CCMS was born with the fundamental goal of developing and promoting science, research, knowledge transfer, and innovation technologies in the Black Sea and in the World Ocean by bringing together science, environment, expertise, stakeholders and policy making. Our activities comprise a vast range of coastal and marine research (studies and surveys in the field of modern coastal and marine processes), as well as support to the implementation of the EU coastal and maritime Strategies and Directives (MSP, ICZM, Blue and Circular Economy, European Green Deal, EU Mission: Restore our Ocean and Waters, etc.), by developing scientific basis and providing knowledge and expertise, project participation, networking and consultancy.

CCMS is directly advised by an Advisory Committee (AC), which involves seventeen distinguished and outstanding scientists and experts from different institutes, universities and organizations all around the globe (Australia, Belgium, Greece, Columbia, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Poland, Romania, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA and Bulgaria). For more information on the AC members explore the AC section on our webpage: http://www.ccms.bg/en/about-ccms/advisory-committee.

Completing Year Six, we find ourselves with a greater sense of purpose and drive as we continued to implement two running large EU funded projects: Horizon Europe Research and Innovation MSP4BIO Project and DG MARE European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture MSP-GREEN Project, and we are involved in new granted Horizon project to start soon this year! Our mission to continue the coastal and marine studies, and our commitment to growing the sustainable Blue Economy through a science-based Maritime Spatial Planning as enabler for the European Green Deal objectives and protecting the natural environment of the Black Sea and beyond, have never been so strong. Explore the project section on our webpage to learn more about our important achievements and deliverables.
