The Sustainable Management of UK Marine Resources

The Sustainable Management of UK Marine Resources programme is a £12.4 million initiative set to deliver research in support of UK marine environmental policy across five years. The research programme will support six projects covering a range of initiatives that seek to achieve the programme’s core themes.

The SMMR programme is addressing critical marine research gaps. These gaps span a variety of disciplines, from natural capital to systems-based management.

SMMR is working to break down barriers between science and policy in order to integrate disciplines, form new marine research teams, and build a strong research base to support decision-making within the UK Exclusive Economic Zone.

Proposals can bid for up to £1.5 million for 36 months and must address at least two of the programme’s three themes.
