POGO - Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans

POGO, is a forum created in 1999 by directors and leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography. Of particular focus is the implementation of an international and integrated global ocean observing system. POGO is a partnership of institutions involved in oceanographic observations, scientific research, operational services, education and training. POGO has 38 member institutes, including several consortia, from 20 different countries, and  works closely with other international and regional programmes and organisations.

EMBRIC - European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster

Funded under the EC Horizon 2020, the European Marine Biological Research Infrastructure Cluster (EMBRIC) is designed to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and innovation from marine Bio-Resources. EMBRIC aims to promote new applications derived from marine organisms in fields such as drug discovery, novel foods and food ingredients, aquaculture selective breeding, bioremediation, cosmetics and bioenergy.

ERA-NET Marine Biotech

Funded under the FP7 ERA-NET scheme, ERA-MBT is a consortium of national funding bodies seeking complementarities between national activities to pool resources to undertake joint funding of transnational projects in the area of Marine Biotechnology. From 2015 onwards, all training courses offered within the consortium are included in the training catalogue.
