Delivering the Theme Research Action Questions

Funding

As indicated in Theme 1 and Theme 2, elements of this strategy are being taken forward through Scottish Government funding, mainly to Marine Scotland Science. Future research actions and also the rate of progress, will depend on the availability of adequate funding, and retention of suitably trained Scottish Government personnel or identification and funding of suitable external capability. Therefore, Scottish Government is prioritising the identification of and access to new funding streams that will support this programme of work. Current options being explored include joint Government and industry partnership initiatives.
