Research Environment

“Training by research in a top R&D centre”


With a diverse research programme, CCMAR has built a track record in the training of future marine scientists. Here, we offer an inclusive research environment, as CCMAR supervisors ensure the full integration of PhD candidates into their teams. Candidates are encouraged to develop original research that contributes to meet our two scientific challenges.



Strategically, CCMAR follows three main research thematic lines, each composed of three work packages. Our candidates are welcomed to develop their work within this framework.







Welcome on board

Upon arrival, candidates are given a ‘welcome program’ organized by our staff in order to introduce CCMAR’s working environment and facilities, convey our core values and mission, explain common working practices and go through standard paperwork processes.


Meet the team

CCMAR supervisors will ensure that candidates are introduced to and fully integrated into the research team with whom they will be working during their doctoral journey.


Get togethers

Informal gatherings take place on a regular basis to build community, share ideas and solutions and inspire our candidates in the pursuit of their doctoral degree and future career choices.
