Blue Skill LABS

During the past ten years new technologies have remarkably extended the scope of marine research and now offer exciting novel perspectives for pioneering research. Unmanned underwater vehicles have reached a high degree of reliability and they develop towards standard equipment on modern research vessels. However, the technical complexity of the systems and their integrated scientific payload is a challenge for both the operational team and the scientists. This is addressed through proposed dedicated training courses to enable the next generation of marine researchers to fully utilize the possibilities offered by this kind of scientific instrumentation onboard European research vessels.

Applications for the Blue Skills Labs will be evaluated on the basis of the scientific/technical career of the applicant and coherency between their studies and the topics in the Labs.

Travel and (eventual) accommodation expenses will be partially refunded after claim submission with receipts for reimbursement.

6 Blues Skills Labs were planned.
