  • My name is Martin Pastoors. I am the director of a newly established research network called the Wageningen University Centre for Marine Policy in the Netherlands. I would very much like to thank the organizers for inviting me to this conference and giving me the opportunity to speak on the subject of cross-border cooperation on the North Sea Dogger Bank.
