The Campus mondial de la mer is France’s foremost community of experts in the study and economic development of the ocean

Our strength lies in the synergy between our network of academic, scientific, economic and institutional stakeholders working across marine science and technology and the wider maritime economy.

We work as part of a regional initiative in western Brittany, underpinned by active cooperation between Brest, Roscoff, Morlaix, Quimper and Concarneau.

Campus mondial de la mer key figures

We aim to promote innovation and convert the existing concentration of marine science and technology expertise in Brittany into the creation of more companies and more jobs.

We work collaboratively to pool our equipment, grow our reputation and publicise the real gems in our shared ecosystem.

The rich, diverse and complementary nature of our community, alongside our deep regional roots, make the Campus a pioneering driver of the blue economy. Our shared values are community, ambition and excellence.
