MARine MAnagement and Ecosystem Dynamics under climate change

Deliverables

T–MARmaED (1st training event)

T-MARmaED 1: Communication and networking Learning goal – Most young researchers are confronted with the challenge of communicating their work, which includes the “traditional skills” of scientific writing and presentation of scientific results on posters and orally during conferences and other scientific meetings. Furthermore, communicating scientific ideas in project proposals addressing various EU (and national) funding mechanisms is an increasingly required skill. Eventually, a crucial requirement for young scientists is networking in order to increase possibilities for scientific cooperation and job opportunities. In a modern world a large component of networking is web-based and comprises social media reaching a general audience (e.g. blogs, Facebook, Twitter) or targeting researchers (e.g. Google-scholar, ResearchGate, ResearcherID). Application of these media needs training for optimal use but also to identify threats and misuse. Content – During this course students will be trained in modern and novel communication and networking skills. In a first session students improve their presentation skills through a poster presentation of their individual projects that will include a short oral presentation. While introducing themselves to the networking they will be confronted with presentation tools and strategies, as well as analysis of their body language [Day 1]. Writing will be the focus of this module and will include efficient presentation of research results in scientific journals [Day 2], as well as strategies for proposal writing and translation of scientific results into popular text [Day 3]. Eventually modern web-based communication tools will be discussed and the final product of this course will be video presentations of individual ESR results targeting a wider audience , which will be posted on the MARmaED website and be accessible through internet video platforms such as YouTube [Day 4].

T–MARmaED (3rd training event)

T-MARmaED 3: Climate Science and Climate Change Impacts Learning goal – Natural climate variability and human-induced climate change are important drivers of change in marine socio-ecological systems. Hence, a firm background in the rapidly developing field of climate science is crucial for young students in earth system and ecosystem science as well as related marine sciences. Students need to know basic principles and concepts of climate research including natural variability, climate modelling and future climate change projections. Content – This course aims to provide theoretical and practical knowledge in climate science, particularly global climate concepts, past climate observations, as well as climate change detection, attribution and modelling. Furthermore the goals, roles and functioning of the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) will be discussed [Day 1]. Further contents will be future climate change projections, regional climate downscaling and climate change impacts on marine activities [Day 2].

T–MARmaED (2nd training event)

T-MARmaED 2: From Single-Species to Ecosystem-Based (Fisheries) Management Learning goal – We are presently facing an advancement from traditional single-species to ecosystem–based fisheries management (EBM) as well as from sectorial to full multi-faceted approaches to conservation and management of our marine resources. For young interdisciplinary scientists it is crucial to understand the theoretical foundations and strategies to implement EBM within the political frameworks especially within the EU, but also worldwide. It is furthermore crucial for future leading scientists to overview the many dimensions of the socio-ecological systems that are the target of EBM. Content – During this course ESRs will achieve knowledge on the main concepts and hierarchies in EBM and the policy drivers determining EU marine environmental assessment and management (Common Fisheries Policy – CFP, Marine Strategy Framework Directive – MSFD). Special reference will be given to the importance of climate change for implementing EBM approaches [Day 1; linked to T-MARmaED 3]. Furthermore, EBM implementation strategies such as statistical indicator approaches, Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (IEA) and Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) will be introduced [Day 2; linked to T-MARmaED 4]. Eventually, the wider perspective of EBM will be discussed considering conflicts and trade-offs between fisheries management and biodiversity conservation and between ecological, social and economic goals [Day 3; linked to T-MARmaED 5].
