Young Talent and the Blue Economy - Towards a fit-for-purpose training for marine graduates

25 September 2018, Brussels, Belgium

A new vision for marine graduate training in Europe, looking beyond the more traditional silo-based approaches to education, is needed.

To achieve this, it is necessary to examine the complex educational landscape that currently produces professional marine experts; identify some of the key issues and challenges faced by educators; and make recommendations on how to improve marine higher educational training in Europe. The EP SEARICA Intergroup has taken the initiative to organise this conference together with the European Marine Board to discuss with representatives from the research community, the industry and students about what is needed to achieve fit-for-purpose training to ensure that the blue economy benefits from the talent of marine graduates. Don't miss that!

The event will be at the European Parliament/ASP 5G1.
