  • strengthen local partnerships between scientists, administrators and decision makers by boosting understanding of the research carried out in the marine environment in Reunion;
  • contribute to the influence and reputation of higher education and research in the south-west Indian ocean by encouraging student exchanges and the training of doctoral and post-doctoral researchers.
