From 2nd to 5th February 2015, a class of student of the Slovene Second Level College of Science “France Prešeren" (Str. di Guardiella 13/1, 34128 Trieste; URL: http://www.preseren.it/) was hosted at CNR ISMAR (Viale Romolo Gessi 2, 34123 Trieste; URL: http://www.ts.ismar.cnr.it/node/13) for a stage on marine sciences.
In the framework of the stage, BALMAS research project was presented to the students through an oral communication performed by Dr. Carolina Cantoni in collaboration to Dr. Stefano Cozzi and Dr. Elisa Baldrighi, the 2nd February 2015.
The project was presented as an example of a marine research applied to the mitigation of a large scale negative pressure on marine ecosystems originated by the human activity. The methodological approach used in this project was also pointed out. It indicates the basic importance of a common cross-border coordination of scientific institutions, authorities and stakeholders for the protection of the marine ecosystem of the Adriatic Sea. This co-operation and exchange of experience and knowledge is particularly important in our region.
