INTERNATIONAL PHD

Approved with full positive remarks by ANVUR: International PhD “Innovative technologies and sustainable use of Mediterranean Sea fishery and biological resources” (FishMed-PhD)

“INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND SUSTAINABLE USE OF MEDITERRANEAN SEA FISHERY AND BIOLOGICAL RESOURCES” (FishMed-PhD)

A major focus of interest of this PhD programme will be set on Mediterranean fisheries and biological resource, both in terms of understanding the impact that fishing pressure can have on ecosystems, but also how commercial fisheries are interconnected with the surrounding marine environment and are themselves impacted by other drivers of change (e.g., climate change, non-native species), and the social and economic consequences for associated marine sectors and human society.

Throughout the programme, PhD students will carry out interdisciplinary, state of the art research, and complement their training through specialized courses on several issues related to  fisheries and the marine environment, using the most advanced technologies.

This international PhD programme is a major step forward in high-profile training, placing Italy at the center of the Mediterranean basin and in particular in the Adriatic-Ionian Macro- region (EUSAIR). 

The PhD students will spend most of their time and conduct their research at theLaboratory of Marine Biology and Fisheries at Fano (BiGeA) and at the Institute of Marine Biology and Biotecnology Resources of the National Research Council, using the laboratories and facilities of all the involved Departments at UniBo as auxiliary infrastructures as seen below.
