Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS)

Organization profile

Organisation profile

MASTS was launched on 4th November 2009 in Edinburgh following the award of seven years funding by the Scottish Funding Council (SFC).

 

This pooling of marine research talent has a constituency of some 700 researchers with the management of resources consisting of over £66 million annually. 

The SFC support for MASTS lasts until 2016, however, MASTS has the ambition to become an integral and important part of the national framework of excellence in marine science in Scotland and is working to become self-supporting as an independent entity beyond the SFC funding period.
