The project assists its member universities in setting up online conferences and classes based on the interactive networking among partners, which ensures popularization of learning materials and international cooperation on education. In addition, MARE gives opportunities to revise and upgrade BSc, MSc & PhD programs related to coastal, delta & marine ecosystem in partner institutions. Furthermore, improving the ability and skills of officials, lecturers, IT technicians, postgraduate students through international workshops, training courses and summer schools is one of priorities of this project. An open platform will be founded to foster academic exchanging, shared experimental facilities and joint scientific research with a dream of the long-lasting efficiency of the post-project development.
