Panel calls for ‘virtual’ marine university

The European Academies Science Advisory Council has recommended that a virtual European marine university be established to lead the coordination of marine sciences research across the continent.

The Easac—made up of the national science academies of the EU member states—published a summary of a study that they have conducted on the marine sciences on 8 June.

The study, conducted jointly with the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, proposes that a ‘virtual’ European marine university be created to improve graduate education, training and research in interdisciplinary marine science. The aim of study, which will be published in full later on in the year, is to address the “emerging governance challenges for integrating the various aspects of marine policy,” Easac said in a statement.
