Amalia Project


Research-based training with Marine Biology students

One of AMALIA’s big objective is to provide students and junior researchers with the tools for a better career development, to be more competitive, and to acquire skills that will help the industry to innovate and be more competitive as well. Together with Diving School JustDive from Peniche, more than 50 Marine Biology students from the School of Tourism and Maritime Technology had SCUBA training, allowing them to be more prepared for future jobs relating SCUBA with science, including seaweed monitoring, or even harvesting for industrial purposes or biotech research.
