Marine Ecomed Course

The main output of the Marine_Ecomed Project is the Intensive Study Program (ISP) on planning and management of marine and coastal areas. It is a multidisciplinary course focused in aspects such as spatial planning, environmental management and sustainability, climate change, stakeholder engagement, innovative research and technologies. The ISP is organized through 2 Long Distance Learning (LDL) modules and a 2 weeks long workshop. It will be conducted for three editions (from 2019 to 2021).

Students will be trained by the experts of the project partner institutions and participate together to the course, collaboration between them will be enhanced to promote knowledge exchange and networking. Participation to the workshop will be supported through the award of Erasmus+ mobility grants available for students of the project partner universities in order to entirely cover their expenses.

The course is valid for 6 ECTS credits and it will be addressed to students from project partner universities (University of Venice, University of Marseille, University of Thessaloniki). Subscription of students from academic institutions external to the partnership will also be considered.
