SUTAS Sustainable Use of Tropical Aquatic Systems

Graduiertenschule SUTAS

SUTAS is a new Leibniz graduate school coordinated by the Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Ecology (ZMT) and conducted jointly with partners in and around Bremen as well as in the tropics.

It offers a structured, high-level interdisciplinary graduate training in the field of tropical coastal system research. Tropical coastal regions are characterised by rapid social and environmental changes, which lead to threats to ecosystem functions and services with local as well as global impacts. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the programme tackles pressing questions of coastal zone ecology, management and human health in the tropics.

SUTAS supports early career scientists by linking them to a national and international network of researchers and institutions. Disciplines covered in SUTAS include marine biology, fisheries science, sedimentology, microbiology, sociology, economics, modelling and epidemiology. The research is conducted in focal regions of ZMT activities, Zanzibar being the one for the first group of PhD students.
