Marine Alliance for Science & Technology for Scotland

Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Marine Alliance for Science & Technology for Scotland (MASTS) pools the research talent, involving about 700 researchers, and the management of resources, consisting of over £66 million annually, in marine science from across Scotland. It strives to ensure that marine science in Scotland can remain internationally competitive. It provides the academic platform and knowledge for marine governance and commerce by helping to establish a Scottish strategy for marine science that will deliver increased value to the public from its investments.

These investments are being made in three MASTS Research Themes and across nine Scottish institutions.
