Framework of the AAP OCEAN Summer school

The Ocean Sciences Institute (OCEAN) is one of the 18 institutes created by Aix-Marseille University, aiming to pursue the structuring of the site in terms of research - training - innovation, in particular by strengthening the links between training and research, interdisciplinarity and internationalization.
