Version imprimable de cet article

The International School of Marine Conservation Science (isMCS) is an intensive 10-day course focused on evidence-based conservation of marine systems from population to ecosystem levels, including human dimension and topical issues in marine conservation, organized jointly by the Department of Biodiversity, University of Primorska (Slovenia, EU) and the Deparment of Wildlife and Fisheries, Oregon State University (USA) in collaboration with the Blue World Institute of Marine Research and Conservation (Croatia, EU).

Welcome to the International School of Marine Conservation Science - isMSC !

The lack of professionals trained in integrated and interdisciplinary evidence-based conservation has been identified as one of the key problems in the field of marine conservation science. Therefore, three institutions from Europe and USA have come together and launched the International School of Marine Conservation Science – isMCS. Our goal is to enhance education and capacity building in the field of marine conservation by training a new generation of conservation scientists. We seek to identify the link between biological systems, human impacts and the critical role of social science, education, and policy in marine conservation.

Offered as a 10-day intensive graduate-level course, accredited by both U.S. (5 credits) and the European credit transfer system (6 ECTS), isMCS provides not only concept and content in the field of marine conservation science, but also facilitates interactions between, and learning among students coming from different countries and geo-political systems of Europe, Americas, Africa, Asia and the Indo-Pacific, providing international contacts as the basis for long-term international collaborative opportunities. If you have an interest in the biological, ecological, environmental, cultural, social, political and economic aspects of Marine Conservation, and aim to make your career in the field of marine conservation science then this class is for you !
