  • To assess the environmental and sustainability of the MARBLES products and processes.

  • Determine the societal value of the outcomes of MARBLES in terms of employment, gender equality, consumer health, local communities, etc.

  • To assist with full regulatory compliance of all the MARBLES products during and after the lifetime of the project.

  • To provide a science-based contribution to the relevant policy debates surrounding the use of marine genetic resources and digital sequence information.
