The huge amount of information available makes it increasingly necessary to recruit researchers that can transform this information into knowledge. A recent international trend also sees the creation of centres of ecological data analysis and synthesis. In this perspective, the SZN will strengthen the Centre Marine Ecological Data Analysis and Synthesis (MEDAS) in collaboration with the University of Stanford.

The goal of this centre is to analyse existing information, by giving answers to the big questions and even economic needs within the Blue Growth. The SZN intends, with this centre, to promote the formation of working groups, summer schools, research activities, visiting scientists and PhDs. MEDAS will focus on marine systems, the ecosystem-based management, and the definition of new research policies and management of marine resources.

SZN intends to improve its expertise in the field of meta-analysis of ecological data and knowledge and technology transfer, thus providing new opportunities of development regionally and nationally.
