Marine Biological projects

AT MBS we are all engaged in project supervision and we complete more than 40 projects every year covering bachelor, master, and PUK projects. The projects are typically experimentally based and the quality and relevance of the projects are supported by the broad of state-of-the-art equipment and set-ups available at MBS. Many of the projects are integrated parts of the larger research projects ran by the staff at MBS and will thus include collaboration with other project students, PhD students and post docs.

We have a long tradition for field based projects, both in Denmark and abroad, and have a local Foundation, The Thorson Foundation, which support such work. The section has much collaboration with governmental institutions and the private sector which ensures applicability and relevance of both our research and teaching and joint projects with these collaborators are frequent.
