Doctoral programmes

The EIDEMAR International Doctoral School in Marine Studies was designed as an institutional structure. The main purpose is to organise various teaching, educational and research activities in CEI·MAR areas of specialisation and lines of investigation. One of the School’s main activities will be to attract students, lecturers, researchers and business professionals and to promote mobility, prioritising actions in the international area. It will also generate effective activities, resources and procedures that promote teaching and research of excellence through various interdisciplinary and inter-institutional relationships maintained by CEI·MAR.

Doctoral Programmes and Lines of Research

EIDEMAR was launched with four highly specialised doctoral programmes in the field of marine studies, which encompass 17 lines of research and 227 researchers, of whom 45 are from 13 different countries.
