Master in Sustainable Blue Growth

Course: The contribution of physical models and field monitoring for the sea environmental safeguard and coastal management and constructions (by Michele Mossa)


The Master in Sustainable Blue Growth is established to bring scientific excellence and technological innovation at the centre of a number of Blue Growth initiatives.

Prof. Michele Mossa's lecture: "The contribution of physical models and field monitoring for the sea environmental safeguard and coastal management and constructions" (OGS Building via Beirut, Grignano, Trieste, Italy)

A unique opportunity

Taking into consideration the current economic crisis and the evolving political, social and environmental conditions in the Mediterranean Region, there is a need to put together multidisciplinary actors from different countries, make ideal environment for constructive dialogue (science diplomacy) and create all conditions that include the role of people, economics and policies to attract investments while reconciling tensions and balancing priorities between economic growth, social implication and environmental conservation.  
Tackling climate change, understanding ecosystem function, managing sustainability: all of these require a much more tangible initiatives and strategies. Hence, the EU Blue Growth initiative represents a long-term strategy to support growth in the maritime sector as a whole by harnessing the untapped potential of Europe’s oceans, seas and coasts for blue jobs creation and economic growth. Establishing appropriate training and mobility opportunities to train new generation of scientists, technicians and operators, in the marine and maritime sectors, equipped with appropriate skills to bridge the gap between scientific research and sustainable development and support the creation of career opportunities in the blue economy represents an important part of this strategy.
The Master

The Master is jointly organized by University of Trieste and OGS to support the creation of stable and attractive blue career pathways throughout strengthening professional skills and enhancing competencies in fields related to sustainable blue growth.
