About the Training Network

Understanding the complex dynamics of seas and oceans under rapid environmental change with a particular focus on its socio-economic consequences is a key requirement. To answer this challenge, European Marine Science must reinforce its position as a global leader by building a greater knowledge base, by breaking down traditional barriers between scientific disciplines, and by communicating wider awareness of the seas and oceans to the general public. Therefor there is a need for ecosystem-based management of natural resources and an urgent requirement to increase and modernise the fundamental knowledge on how marine ecosystems are functioning and to propagate this knowledge to society. MARmaED is designed to explore and investigate marine ecosystem change in careful detail from physical and biological effects to economic management implications and is unique in the way it will integrate effect studies with economic perspectives. However, integrating scientific reasoning into policy implementation indeed pose a great challenge. A key element of MARmaED is using the 15 PhDs to create new trans-disciplinary collaborations encouraged by specifically tailored secondments in the non-academic sector. The main objectives and benefits will be for the students to learn the way of working and thinking from the secondment partners.
