Our position as the main element of the marine strategy of the University of Vigo, and as the University´s main marine knowledge generator, makes us an important technology transfer element towards marine and maritime productive sectors and to society, it allows us to nurture the University´s marine academic programs, to establish relations with Centre´s and research groups from other knowledge areas, and to represent the University in regional, national and international marine initiatives, like for example the International Excellence Campus of the Sea (Campusdomar), the European Marine Research Network (Euromarine) ou o European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC).
The centre´s main gobernance element is the Management Committee, which ellaborates the Centre´s strategy supported by two consultive bodies, the Scientific Board, with representation of all of the Centre´s research teams, and the External Advisory Board, composed of recognised proffessionals in the management of scientific knowledge generation, transfer and communication activities, specially in the marine and maritime sectors. This committee is additionally in charge of the evaluation of the adequacy and implementation of our strategy.
The implementation of the Centre´s strategy is carried out by a Technical Unit with three sub-units (Research and Innovation, Communication and Promotion of Scientific Culture, and Marine Research Infrastructures) under the coordination of the Management Committee.
