SeaChanges: Thresholds in human exploitation of marine vertebrates

About the project

SeaChanges has it's own website at: SeaChanges

SeaChanges is an international doctoral training network spanning archaeology and marine biology, which supports 15 fully-funded PhD projects across seven institutions in 6 countries. The network takes a long-term perspective on human exploitation of marine vertebrates, with projects covering species from herring to sperm whale, timescales from decades to millennia, and all of Europe's seas and beyond.


1. Develop a truly interdisciplinary training platform, breaking down boundaries between archaeological & biological sciences.

2. Improve understanding of the time depth of human use of and impact on key European marine species.

3. Train a cohort of researchers who can communicate across disciplinary and sectoral boundaries.

4. Increase cross-disciplinary and cross-sectoral awareness of the potential of long-term perspectives in marine ecology.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 813383
