Students, researchers, fishermen, aquaculturists and other marine professionals will gather at the University of Maine’s marine laboratory, Darling Marine Center (DMC), on Thursday, Aug. 11 for the SEA Fellows Summer Science Symposium.
The SEA (Science for Economic Impact and Application) Fellows program is a new initiative developed by UMaine and the University of Maine at Machias (UMM) to catalyze university-industry partnerships.
The program supports undergraduate research related to Maine’s marine economy, as well as the ecosystems and coastal communities that support it. It is funded by a National Science Foundation award to Maine EPSCoR at UMaine, and in-kind support from DMC and the Downeast Institute, UMM’s marine field station.
Undergraduate students from around Maine who are conducting applied marine research projects will present their work as posters 2–5 p.m. in Brooke Hall, on the lower DMC campus.
This event is open to the public and RSVPs are requested by Thursday, Aug. 4 to email@example.com or 207.563.8124.
