 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Europe has a very long and distinguished history in Marine Biology and its coastal marine biological stations are the oldest in the world. For example, Stazione Zoologica in Naples (SZN), Station Biologique in Roscoff (SBR) and Kristineberg Marine Research Station in Fiskebäckskil (KMRS) were all established in the late 19th Century. They began an enviable tradition as marine biological research stations that acted, even at that time, as international infrastructure sites to serve, enhance and develop collaborative marine research worldwide. Now, however, they have become a new breed of marine research station, developing and applying new technologies and facilities that allow a higher quality of service, not only to the marine biologist community but also to the increasing numbers of scientists that are turning to marine organisms as models with which to investigate fundamental questions in biology. Building upon this enviable tradition ASSEMBLE seeks to create a network of key marine biological research stations around the European coastline including the sub-tropical station at Eilat (IUI). Uniquely, we also include a Pacific site in Chile (PUC) that provides access to one of the most important upwelling sites in the world. We aim to develop an integrated infrastructure that will make possible for biologists in Europe to study a range of unique coastal ecosystems and a wide variety of marine organisms using the most advanced approaches in modern biology. It will be based on the existing hosting capacities, sea-going facilities and research background of these marine stations, which, as noted above, already have a long experience in hosting students and visiting scientists. This infrastructure will focus on key marine ecosystems and biological models, making possible both the enhancement of existing infrastructures and the introduction and development of new technologies. These include, for example, indoor and outdoor equipment for the cultivation/raising/study o'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Marine biology stations across Europe are joining forces to improve existing research infrastructures and support cooperative activities to sustain the competitiveness of European marine sector.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Since the 19th century, Europe has been actively involved in marine biology research and its coastal marine biology stations are the oldest in the world. Their aim is to support collaborative research globally through the provision of necessary technologies and facilities.

The EU funded 'Association of European marine biological laboratories' (ASSEMBLE) project is a joint venture of mainly European marine research stations. Researchers plan to develop an integrated infrastructure to increase possibilities for European scientists to excel in marine biology research. For this purpose, the consortium aims to upgrade existing infrastructure and enhance transnational access (TNA) to these sites.

Activities geared towards the improvement of existing technologies focus on new models for marine genetics. New multi cellular organisms, unicellular eukaryotic organisms and cell lines are being included for experimentation alongside novel genetic and molecular resources.

From a networking perspective, the ASSEMBLE consortium is organising five workshops for staff training on culture techniques, conservation of microbial resources, functional genomics and scientific diving. Partners are also establishing a virtual toolbox for protocols and good practice guidelines for on site and remote access. Combined with a shared database for marine organisms, these measures aim to increase the coordination between marine stations both within and outside the ASSEMBLE network.

Marine biologists could perform research at the ASSEMBLE stations for four weeks after applying for site access at the biannual project calls. The activities of the ASSEMBLE project will aid TNA to marine ecosystems and organisms. State-of-the-art experimental facilities and novel technology platforms will improve the quality of marine biology research in Europe.
