Centre for Applied Marine Sciences
Welcome to the Centre for Applied Marine Sciences (CAMS)
Increasing the impact of marine research: CAMS links academic research to real-world applications; all our projects are defined by end user needs and results are rapidly applied to specific issues.
Marine Science Expertise: We have over 30 staff dedicated to specific projects, plus we draw upon the multi-disciplinary skills of over 100 members of staff at the School of Ocean Sciences, one of the largest academic marine science centres in Europe.
Access to Specialist Resources: we can provide access to a wide range of specialist facilities and equipment, laboratories, computing facilities as well as the research vessel Prince Madog and a fleet of smaller vessels.
Collaborative research: We work with partners in industry, national and international agencies and government in a range of relationships including strategic programmes, collaborative research, contract research and consultancy.
