The Training Through Research Surveys Scheme (TTRS) is a collaboration with the Marine Institute that increases national capacity in offshore marine research by offering seagoing placements on a range of research surveys on-board the national research vessels, RV Celtic Explorer and RV Celtic Voyager. On-board placements provide the experience and skills required to work at sea and facilitate career development in ocean science. Participation also serves as a valuable opportunity to network with leading Irish and European marine scientists.
