The European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA) was the first international research effort on ocean acidification. It was launched in May 2008 with the overall goal to further our understanding of the biological, ecological, biogeochemical, and societal implications of ocean acidification. The project comprised more than 160 scientists from 32 institutions in Belgium, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom). EPOCA was co-funded by the European Commission for four years as part of the Seventh Framework Programme.
