Training Through Research (TTR)

The TTR programme is managed by the Executive Committee (Co-ordinator: Dr. Neil Kenyon, Southampton Oceanography Centre, UK). Its Scientific Committee is responsible for formulating research tasks and targeting the TTR cruises.

The annual TTR cycle of activities includes:
* preparation of a cruise by the Executive and Scientific Committees;
the TTR cruise, with (when possible) a mid-cruise workshop and/or field excursion(s) for the participants and invited scientists;

* preliminary data processing, preparation and publication of scientific reports;

* a post-cruise conference to present and discuss the results of on-going analysis and interpretation of data, and to co-ordinate with other regional studies;

* preparation of scientific publications.

About 500 scientists and students have been taken part in the cruises. They hailed from some 25 countries mostly scattered around the North Atlantic, Black Sea and Mediterranean regions, but some were from other regions (Latin America, Middle East, and Southeast Asia). Altogether, about one thousand people have been involved in TTR if one counts mid-cruise workshops and post-cruise meetings and other activities. TTR is open for co-operation to all those interested in making break-through research and gaining new experience through training in multi-disciplinary science.
