The blue economy offers unlimited potential for the future citizens. Education is the path to harness the potential.

MRC’s Focus on Academia

The role of academia is far-reaching in emergent concepts in environmental research, technological development, policy proposals, standardization of environmental technologies, technical guidance, distribution and commercialization of technology as well as developing centers of excellence to create the future workforce to harness the potential of the blue economy- the role of academia is far reaching. As visionaries work towards shaping our future citizens, we support their initiatives across different levels: from NEP 2020 to alignment of newer vocational and skill based learning.

Our proven approach to capacity and capability building ensures a robust, sustainable framework upon which institutions can build and manage their academic disciplines relating to the underwater domain.

Our approach to create the right academic foundation leverages the comprehensive UDA framework alongside our mantra of Outreach, Engage, Sustain to deliver tangible results.

Our Mantra

As the first step, this phase enables sensitization of the audiences towards the opportunities within the Underwater Domain. This is executed with strategic outreach program comprising of webinars, seminars, workshops, interactions and more driven by specific agenda relevant to the audiences and allied stakeholders.

At this stage we ensure adequate handholding to facilitate skill building and creation of adequate knowledge to drive momentum. With help of alliance partners and our deep knowledge experts, we ensure transfer of skills and attitudes required for future success.

At this step, the focus is on creating long term sustainable frameworks with effective policy & technology interventions at multiple levels. The implementation of the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Best Practices (BPs) play a strong role in ensuring that stakeholders are able to sustain the momentum required to deliver sustainable impact in areas related to the Underwater Domain.
