CIMA strategy for 2018-2022 is based on a RTMD approach: Research (fundamental and applied) – Tools (development, test and validation) – Management (practices and best solutions) – Dissemination (to stakeholders and public).
In line with the European Commission Societal Challenges and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, issues linked to Environmental Systems and their resources and to Ocean and Coastal Dynamics will be addressed through 4 main scientific objectives:
1 - Understanding the dynamics of oceans (from the coast to the open ocean)
2 - Developing sustainable resource exploitation
3 - Assessing and mitigating global changes and risks
4 - Capitalizing knowledge towards a sustainable and resilient society
