The INSITE PhD Scholarship Programme is led by the INSITE Programme Advisory Group (PAG), the group responsible for the scientific direction of INSITE.
The PAG is interested in proposals from universities and research institutions for PhD’s which increase the understanding of the ecosystems on and around man-made structures in the North Sea. Topics of particular interest under the INSITE Scholarship Programme are:
- Changes in the ecosystem which occur due to the placement of man-made structures in the marine environment or as a consequence of their removal;
- Comparisons between the ecosystem structure and function on native and non-native hard substrate;
- Variability in ecosystem structure and function on man-made structures against varying temporal scales.
