The Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS) is an initiative between the University of Tasmania, CSIRO and the Australian Antarctic Division. It was officially opened in late 2014. The role of the CMS is to bring research expertise from the different disciplines (e.g. physical and biological sciences, social sciences, economics, law, etc.) to address the multiple use management of our marine estate with a particular emphasis on providing knowledge and tools that can underpin future use across all users whether they be commercial, recreational or environmental.
This show case provides an opportunity for you to hear from our exciting early career researchers and PhD students and we hope that we can demonstrate why our marine resources will be well looked after by the next generation of researchers.
We have split the day into a morning section where you will hear about three very different research projects and an afternoon where our PhD students will demonstrate the breadth and diversity of research which the CMS undertakes through its interdisciplinary approach.
