  • Mae'r tîm @PrifysgolBangor a @PrifysgolAbertawe yn bwriadu cynnal rhagor o waith gyda'r sector morol Cymru mewn project newydd SEACAMS2.

We are a collaboration between 3 leading Welsh universities aiming to help expand the marine and coastal sector in Wales. Read on to find out more about us or click here to find out how we can assist you.

Who are we?

We are a partnership of internationally recognised marine research experts from three of the leading universities in Wales:

By forming this partnership we are able to bring together some of the world's leading research expertise in marine science, including marine and terrestrial environmental scientists. SEACAMS (Sustainable Expansion of the Applied Coastal and Marine Sectors) is a unique venture, the first in the world, to combine such a range of knowledge and expertise.

What do we do?

SEACAMS aims to improve access for businesses in the marine and coastal sector to expertise and facilities in Higher Education. By transferring knowledge between academic and commercial components, cutting-edge research can be rapidly exploited by the commercial sector. In essence we work with businesses to develop new ideas and solve technical problems.
Our objectives are to meet Welsh, UK and EU policy needs, whilst promoting a sustainable environment and expansion in marine activities. We want to:

  • maximise economic impact of academia and business;
  • increase investment in commercially-driven R & D;
  • support and expand knowledge-based and technology companies in Wales;
  • maximise realised benefits of innovation and science.

To do this, we offer a range of facilities and expertise to assist eligible companies.
