Networking is an essential aspect of international research. Therefore, Dalhousie University (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) and Universitetet i Bergen (Norway) established POME (Prediction and Observation of the Marine Environment) together with their network partners, the Halifax Marine Research Institute and both the Instiute of Marine Research (IMR) and Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center in Bergen.

We consider it as important for students of marine sciences at all academic levels to not only get in firsthand contact with research at their home institution as early as possible during their studies, but ideally also participate in exchange programmes to get involved in international marine research.

POME creates possibilities for exchange at undergraduate (internships), graduate (joint thesis supervision) or Ph.d. level (joint supervision of projects), staff exchange and topical workshops in marine sciences.

This page serves as a source of general information about the exchange programme.

If you have further questions, please contact any of the Contact persons or go on Facebook and search for "Prediction and Observation of the Marine Environment" to find our Facebook-group where you will have the chance to get in contact with students also participating or already having participated in the exchange programme.

Application is open twice a year for students of both Universitetet i Bergen, Norway and Dalhousie University, Canada.

Latest call for application (currently no open call) (call for apllications).
