Researchers have received a share of £9.2 m from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to investigate how to safeguard the future of the marine and coastal economy, while protecting sea ecosystems.
National Maritime are delighted to be one of the successful project partners behind the bid led by Professor Stephen Fletcher, University of Portsmouth – ‘Integrating diverse values into the sustainable management of marine resources in the UK’
The goal of the project is to generate an enduring step-change in the trans-disciplinary capability of the UK marine policy stakeholder and research community to identify and incorporate more diverse voices and values into the sustainable management of the UK’s marine resources.
Researchers will drive an innovative and creative agenda of transformational research that both significantly advances our understanding of values-based marine management and which provides actionable tools and approaches that can feed directly into contemporary marine management practice in the UK.
The research will take place in Portsmouth and Newhaven, the Upper Severn Estuary and the Shetland Islands.
