Universities Consortium Panel - UCP

Background

Across Europe a number of Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) have formed distinct consortia to bring together institutions with interests in marine science. Under the auspices and with the support of the European Marine Board (EMB), there has been a desire amongst some of these country or regionally based consortia to explore areas of mutual interest with regards to both research and education in the broadest sense.
 

Panel Objectives

To create a working group within the EMB to:

  • Establish a forum for HEI consortia that exist or are in development to meet
  • Help identify and share best practice with respect to the governance and operation of these consortia
  • Identify and share opportunities for HEI consortia to collaborate across the EU or internationally
  • Actively seek to secure resources and funding to support graduate student and specifically PhD student training
  • Promote each other’s consortiums both nationally and internationally
  • Identify where the respective resources and networks that exist within these consortia can add value to existing and future EMB activities
