Save the date: On 20th April, the SMMR Programme intends to launch the SMMR-Net, a network to facilitate and underpin the development of a broad and inclusive community of interdisciplinary researchers and stakeholders.
The objectives of this interdisciplinary network will be to provide:
- A focal point for those interested in understanding and engaging with interdisciplinary social, economic and natural science research across marine and coastal systems
- A platform to facilitated interdisciplinary collaboration
- A framework to encourage the development of a community of interdisciplinary researcher
- A framework to encourage trans-disciplinary conversation in relation to marine management.
It is clear that interdisciplinary research is key underpinning for delivering solutions based approaches to some of the greatest challenges facing society and the environment. By fostering and supporting the development of the interdisciplinary skills and capacity needed, SMMR-Net will enable its members to be better prepared and equipped to address these challenges.
The launch will be an online event which will help to shape the development of the SMMR-Net. We expect to issue a detailed programme for this 3 hour event in mid-March.
