Marine and maritime research (2017-2021)
University of Turku (UTU) and Åbo Akademi University (ÅAU) have joined forces in multidisciplinary marine and maritime research. Thematic topics studied in both universities include marine and coastal environment, maritime economy and technology, law and governance, and culture and history.
The joint profiling area is built upon excellent research infrastructures in the coastal region of the SW Finland. Here, the unique archipelago environment, long settlement history, and diverse marine and maritime sectors are combined.
The joint efforts of UTU and ÅAU in marine and maritime research, including the creation of these webpages, are funded in 2017-2021 by the Academy of Finland funding to Finnish universities to support them in strengthening their research profiles.
