Launch of the Marine Social Sciences Network

The new Marine Social Sciences Network will be launched at the GMC Society and the Sea 2018 conference in a keynote address by Dr Emma McKinley. 

The Network will facilitate knowledge exchange between diverse stakeholders and establish an active community of interdisciplinary researchers, policy makers and practitioners from across the marine and coastal sector, with a view to increasing awareness and understanding of the integral role that social sciences can have in management and decision making for our global seas and coastline. The Network will be a multidisciplinary community, facilitating collaboration and dialogue between both marine social and natural science, the arts and humanities. The conference will be an opportunity to learn more about the Network, to express an interest in being part of the community and feed into discussions about how the Network can support marine and coastal efforts in the coming years.
