In July 1990, the Council of Ministers approved the support and the implementation of the "Impulsprogramme Marine Sciences" with a budget of 4,6 MEURO.

The objective of the programme was to give several research groups a renewed stimulus to lay the groundwork for better understanding of the marine environment and the natural and human factors that influence it. The programme aimed to contribute to international research efforts regarding the protection and sustainable use of the North Sea and Scheldt estuary and to assist the process of policy decision making at national level.

The programme enabled 18 research teams working on 12 projects to conduct research from September 1992 to December 1996.
