Capacity building and Official Development Assistance (ODA)

PML is committed to capacity building by sharing knowledge, challenges and solutions to help train the next generation of marine scientists and ensure a sustainable future for our global ocean.

We are working to help strengthen the skills, competencies and abilities of marine scientists, particularly in developing societies through a suite of projects and partnerships. This involves training courses and workshops, development of networks, partnerships and infrastructure and production of educational resources such as Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).

We are dedicated to training the next generation of marine scientists through the supervision of graduate and postgraduate students and were delighted to welcome our first two Modern Apprentices in 2016.

Through the delivery of our Science Plan we are increasing scientific knowledge and developing research capacity to contribute to several of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), in particular SDG14 which looks to "conserve and sustainable use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development".

Making a difference

One of our recent successes was securing funding from the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) for the Blue Communities project which will help to build long-term research capability for marine planning in East and South-East Asia. This will support local coastal communities which depend upon healthy and diverse marine ecosystems for food, livelihoods, their health and well-being.
