Title: Scientific Diving in Europe: Integration, Representation and Promotion.
Author: Sayer, MDG; Fischer, P; Feral, J-P
Abstract: In 2000, the European Union (EU) created the European Research Area with the intention of forming a unified area across Europe that would enable researchers to move and interact seamlessly based on a series of aligned working directives. The EU research network presently consists of 33 countries made up of the EU member states (27 countries) plus an additional 6 non-EU member countries that have associated status. The challenge for European scientific diving has been to integrate existing national programmes through a single organisational structure that supports the promotion of recognized diving standards within European science while advancing the wider acceptance of diving as a research tool. Since 2007, scientific diving in Europe has been overseen by the European Scientific Diving Committee that is based on the principle of promoting the European Scientific Diver and the Advanced European Scientific Diver competencies as the primary European scientific diving standards.
