The Commission of the European Communities calls for expressions of interest by qualified institutions for the organization of courses in 1994 in the context of the specific programme of RTD in marine science and technology, MAST (1990-1994). The specific topics of the courses must fall into one of the following disciplines: - Physical oceanography; - Biological oceanography; - Marine geosciences; - Coastal zone science and engineering; - Marine instrumentation. The objectives of the courses are to further advance education on specific topics, to exploit the wide-ranging teaching capacities of European institutions for transnational education, and to improve communication between students on a European level. The course should be residential, of 2-3 weeks duration, and organized in a European institute which has some experience in running advanced training programmes. The organizer should be a scientist who is an expert in the field of the training course. Expressions of interest which do not include speakers from at least 3 European countries (EC, EFTA) will not be considered. Expressions of interest should include the title of the course, organizing institution, scientist responsible, list of speakers, short description of course content, an explanation of the relevance of the topic to European/international science (up to one page), location, maximum number of participants, dates, duration and budget (costs in ECU).
