Becoming a partner

Is your institute interested in becoming an associate member in the IMBRSea consortium?

The International Master in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea), is a joint Master programme organized by nine leading European universities in the field of marine sciences; Ghent University (BE), University of Pierre and Marie Curie (FR), University of the Algarve (PT), University of Oviedo (ES), Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (IE), University of the Basque Country (ES), Polytechnic University of Marche (IT), University of Bergen (NO) and Université de Bretagne Occidentale (FR), and supported by the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC). IMBRSea covers a wide, yet consistent, range of subjects related to the sustainable use of marine biological resources. With an emphasis on marine biological and ecological processes, the programme links biology of marine organisms and environmental studies with subjects in marine policy and planning.

An IMBRSea associate partner has the opportunity to:

  • offer opportunities for Professional Practices organized between April and June very year
  • offer thesis research opportunities , organized between January and June every year.

IMBRSea is currently the largest international master programme in the field of marine sciences with over 100 students starting the programme in September 2017. A large supporting network of research institutes, companies and associations is thus crucial to deliver the programme at high quality standards in an international context.
