The new Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre will boost marine science capacity in Australia.
As part of this exciting collaboration, two facilities are being developed – the Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre at the UWA Crawley Campus, and upgrading the existing Watermans Bay Marine Centre, approximately 24kms from Crawley.
The Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre is a collaboration that brings together four of Australia's leading research organisations working in and around the Indian Ocean:
The collaboration includes developing new multi-disciplinary research teams and creating a graduate training environment that will significantly advance Australia's marine science capacity, capability, and profile.
The development is being made possible by a grant from the Australian Government as part of the Education Investment Fund, and contributions from the four collaborating organisations.
