Europole Mer and the regional community
With the financial support of the university cluster PRES UEB, Europole Mer contributes to structuring the marine scientific community at a local level through various activities:
Supporting local initiatives
Europole Mer aims at supporting local initiatives with an international dimension to organise workshops, intensive training courses and conferences on given themes and specialised topics. By addressing a public of both PhD students and researchers on specialised topics, expected outcomes for the Europole Mer scientific community of such activities are:
- To contribute to training activities at a postgraduate level
- To enhance collaboration between Europole Mer partners through practical courses
- To enhance interactions between students and researchers within the Europôle Mer
- To provide the Europole Mer community with an exchange platform with international partners on their “niche” topics.
These events are led and organised by a Europole Mer partner. Events co-funded since 2009 are :
- Aimen: Innovative approaches in marine environement modelling (19-23 Aug 2013)
