This programme intends to establish groupings of research teams with sufficient critical mass to achieve international visibility, credibility and excellence. These would be from fields of research defined as critical within the global context of understanding how oceans work and of sustainable management of its resources but in which the Campus do Mar currently lacks knowledge and/or sufficient resources for their development.
The emerging lines of research that will comprise strategic research programmes from 2011 to 2015, are as follows:
- Analysis and modelling of complex marine systems.
- “Omic” technologies: applications in the marine environment.
- Energy from marine sources.
