Marine ecosystems are an essential component of the Earth: a source of biodiversity, food and life; as well as the most biologically diverse. However, they are undervalued and probably largely unknown.
This training programme offers a fast-track learning path for people who want to develop specific skills in sustainable marine ecosystems through a multidisciplinary, practical and integrated approach.
This programme is intended for managers, civil servants, professionals, graduates, postgraduates and vocational students with a background on environmental studies.
The TRASMARES itinerary is based on four Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) that will allow students to delve deeper into marine ecosystems to understand their functions, benefits and main threats. The goal is to provide world-class knowledge on new methodologies, procedures and tools for the conservation and sustainable management of marine and coastal ecosystems in the context of climate change.
An unparalleled partnership between three European Higher Education Institutions is responsible for the scientific soundness of this ambitious training initiative: Universidad de Cantabria (Spain), Università di Bologna (Italy), and Universidade de Coimbra (Portugal) with Telefonica Educación Digital (TED), a leading international provider of high impact life-long learning solutions.
