      Introduction: (Volver arriba)

        There is an increasing need for adoption of an ecosystem approach to exploitation of marine resources, to promote ecological, environmental, economic and social sustainability and preserve biodiversity. The next generation of marine scientists will need to be fully trained in these concepts. A consortium of eight internationally-recognized universities and marine science institutes in UK, Spain and Greece offers early stage training in a range of topics related to the project theme (e.g. life history biology, population, community and ecosystem ecology, immunology, physiology, molecular genetics, stock assessment, fishery and coastal zone management, fisheries economics, physical oceanography and marine GIS), with particular emphasis on an ecosystem approach to sustainable management of living marine resources. The partners are University of Aberdeen (including Oceanlab, Lighthouse Field Station and the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre, UK), Fisheries Research Services Marine Laboratory (UK), Scottish Association for Marine Science (UK), Institute of Marine Biological Resources (Greece), Centro Oceanográfico de Vigo (Spain), University of Vigo (Spain), University of the Aegean (Greece) and Instituto de Investigaciones Marinas (Spain). The proposed project will run for 4 years and offer training periods of 3 to 36 months, with trainees encourage to choose projects involving stays at more than one partner centres. The partnership has extensive research experience and an excellent track record in training early stage researchers, with full quality assurance provisions in place. Training will include a strong element of core transferable skills as well as specialist training. Supervision will be provided by acknowledged experts in each field and trainees have access to a range of specialist facilities including research vessels, landers, ROVs, as well as fully-equipped state-of-the-art laboratory, computing and library facilities.
