Upgrade Black Sea SCENE is a project fostering the development of research infrastructure of marine environmental institutes and organisations around the Black Sea. It is three year concerted effort, that started in 2009 and is running until 2011. The project is supported by the EU Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research and development.

Upgrade Black Sea SCENE builds upon the successful experience of its predecessor Black Sea SCENE, which was dedicated to the development of a scientific network of leading environmental and socio-economic research institutes, universities and NGOs from the countries around the sea, and contributed to a growing data and information infrastructure. The project consists of a large consortium of Black Sea institutes and European experts comprising over 50 partner organisations.
