Training and capacity building

Our staff draw upon decades of Cefas knowledge and methods, as well as their own research at the cutting edge of marine science. We believe science is collaborative and progressed when people share their ideas and so we offer training and capacity building as part of many of our programmes.

We believe science is collaborative and progressed when people share their ideas

The broad scope of our science enables us to create unique training courses which bring together different scientific disciplines to give fellow scientists and researchers the tools to carry out their own analyses.

Our methods can be refined by learning from other scientists and so many of our international programmes include a focus on capacity building, to enable local researchers to apply our methods but also work together to adapt them to their specific needs and equipment.

Our leading specialist scientific and technical staff can also create and offer bespoke training courses across our science offerings to support knowledge transfer between organisations, both in the UK or abroad.
