The European Commission’s Expert Group on career development in the blue economy has named the education-industry cooperation one out of three critical areas of importance. In 2018, the European Marine Board published a paper titled “Training the 21st-century marine professionals” that proposes a new vision for marine graduate training in Europe.
To achieve this, we must improve the capabilities of the next generation of marine scientists and engineers to work at the systems level, applying multi-disciplinary knowledge to address complex issues. Most of the recommendations included in this Marine Board publication align with the necessity of a more vital link between academia and the non-academic sector as potential employers of doctorate holders.
