Session 6 - Ocean Margin Educational
European Deep Ocean Margins (EURODOM) provides a major framework in
Europe for training young researchers in a fascinating field, at the interface
of Earth and Life Sciences, and at the crossroads between Academia and
Industry. This is also at the frontier of preserving ocean margin habitats
and the safe exploration for potential new energy resources in deep-ocean
margins. It offers significant space for training at sea. On land it offers
some of the best data processing and analytical facilities in Europe.
This network is open for advanced training and educational opportunities
for pre- and post-doctoral researchers to meet the linkage between Marine
Geosciences, Environment, and the hydrocarbon industry as far as they
relate to deep-ocean margins. The conference provides a forum to increase
educational network activities across the Atlantic and countries interested
in the implementation of an Educational Cyberlink Network that reaches
out to our young generation interested and involved in ocean sciences.
Ocean Margin Educational Networks and their potential for hundreds of
young scientists has been demonstrated successfully through the IOC-UNESCO
(TTR) Training Through Research Program, which has introduced education
at sea as one of the research concepts in Europe.
