In this collaborative research project, the National Lobster Hatchery has partnered with the European Centre to develop a series of experiments that will help to improve the survival rates of lobster hatchlings, and boost their populations in Cornish waters. The NHL is based in Padstow, Cornwall, and aiming to support the region’s vulnerable coastal biodiversity.
Cornish digital company, Buzz Interactive, are working with the Centre to develop a tool to monitor the symptoms of Ménière’s Disease and provide a greater insight into the factors that impact its symptoms. The team are hoping to create a database of information that can be linked to Met Office weather data.
In this collaborative 'citizen science' project the Centre and Cornish digital company, Sea Communications, are developing an interactive application and digital platform to explore relationships between the quality of natural environments and human health and wellbeing.
The Centre has partnered with Cornish company Exhale to create an ESF funded PhD that will investigate the benefits to children of interacting with the aquatic environment. This work forms a long term opportunity for the organisation to engage with academic research, allowing them to develop interventions founded on scientific findings.
