Marine Science and Technologies
Marine science and technology research areas are contained in the Marine
Science and Technologies (MAST III) (1994-98) Work Programme. The general
objective is to foster the scientific knowledge and technological
development necessary to understand how marine systems function at basin
scales, in order to prepare for sustainable use of the oceans consistent
with the management of marine environmental quality and to determine
their role in global change.
- 1. Marine Science
- 1.1. Marine systems research
1.2. Extreme marine environments
1.3. Regional seas research
- 2. Strategic Marine Research
- 2.1. Coastal and shelf seas research
2.2. Coastal engineering and natural defences
- 3. Marine Technology
- 3.1. Generic technologies
3.2. Advanced systems
- 4. Supporting Initiatives
In addition to the
general criteria indicated in the
the MAST program requires that
- applications should be self-containing research projects feasible in
the time of duration of the fellowship;
- applications can be, but do not need to be, links to MAST funded
projects. If linked to a MAST project, the application should not be
part of the work done withing the project but a compliment to it.
Types of Grants
- Grants for training
- For post-graduate researchers (category 20)
minimum 6 months, maximum 2 years (no extention is possible
under any circumstance);
- For post-doctoral researchers (category 30)
minimum 6 months, maximum 2 years.
- Return Grants (category R)
maximum one year.

Fourth Framework Programme (1994-1998)
of the European Union regarding the
Research Traning Grants scheme.
