An interesting article published by the Southhampton Marine and Maritime Institute (SMMI)
Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute (SMMI) is a unique, internationally recognised centre of excellence for research, innovation and education. Their work spans both the natural ocean environment (marine) and human use of the sea (maritime). They are a community of academics from across the University of Southampton, whose interests and research are linked to the marine/maritime realm. By working across the traditional disciplinary divides, they can better address some of today’s global marine & maritime challenges.
Their ambition is to become the world’s leading institute for marine and maritime research, innovation and education. They are achieving this by creating interdisciplinary, cross-sector partnerships both inside and outside the university covering humanities, natural, physical and social sciences. Knowledge generated through our collaborative research is applied in our teaching to create the next generation of marine and maritime professionals.
