WP10 – Educational & technological capacity strengthening

Educational and technological capacity strengthening is intended to initiate and facilitate human capital and technological capacity development (S05) by proposing concrete collaborative initiatives between South American and African countries and the EU in the field of marine research, natural and social sciences, including education and training activities (joint PhD courses, student exchanges, visiting scholarships, technical training, curricula support), and helping initiate a Cross-Atlantic Network of Excellence in Marine Science (CANEMS) as a cross-cutting activity hosted by FURG. Further, by enhancing technological capacity development for fisheries data collection and management purposes based on mobile IT solutions.
