Over 150 years of marine science teaching and research
The focus of the revitalised Marine Studies Institute (MSI - formerly USIMS) is to communicate the significant research undertaken by the marine community at the University of Sydney. The main emphasis will be placed on networking academics across disciplines throughout the university, as well as publicising marine research outcomes in the public arena.
An advisory board has been established encompassing the faculties of Science, Engineering and Law, which provides MSI with a coherent voice representing University of Sydney marine science affiliations. This group will reach out to key industry and government entities to leverage direction on innovative, applied research that responds to national needs.
To assist in the facilitation of MSI outcomes, an annual marine studies showcase will be re-established. This event will enable diverse university entities to highlight high-calibre research and projects which are being undertaken by academics and postgraduate students. This platform will promote innovative, cross disciplinary marine research that can be applied to national and international investigations.
