In a world that is finally beginning to understand the importance of the ocean to our society, it is critical that scientific, economic and societal stakeholders work together. Science seeks to better understand the relationships between marine organisms and their environment, thus facilitating the protection of the ocean by highlighting its value to society. In parallel, our understanding of the marine environment opens up new economic opportunities in the fields of aquaculture, pharmaceuticals, cosmeceuticals, tourism, construction and energy.
With a limited life science background, students may be interested by our Level-Up certification before applying to the Science & Society track. And for professionals and for graduates from other fields who would like to redirect their career, we have designed the 1-year track Blue Managers.
The 2-year Science, Conservation and Valorization of Marine Resources program from University of Côte d'Azur , combined with empowering immersion projects, allows you to become researchers, conservation specialists, environmental consultant, or entrepreneurs. Whatever your interests, you will become the open-minded specialist that our society needs to solve current and emerging ocean issues.
