TEC is exploring the research area of marine science and technology in an
effort to address the challenges imposed by the Portuguese region of maritime
pillars support the project’s concept:
A new collaboration network involving top European research institutions in the marine science and technology area, articulated with existing networks in specific fields of expertise.
A training strategy based on sessions touching multidisciplinary aspects followed by sessions focused on specific fields of expertise, allowing researchers to improve their knowledge and preparing them for the research and implementation challenges in the sea harsh environment.
Focused workshops that enable researchers to go deeper and improve their knowledge on specific topics and skills in the marine science and technology area, as well as improve their knowledge in adjacent fields of expertise.
A training strategy targeting not only theoretical training but also hands-on training, enabling direct application of the knowledge acquired and improve their understanding of the actual requirements of the stakeholders, allowing them to design solutions with higher economic potential.
Interchange and interaction among different fields of expertise is fundamental to address the ocean challenges, due to the multidisciplinary nature of the application area. Cross-fertilization among fields of expertise is also key to stimulate the design of better specific solutions.
