CEI·MAR, insofar as international aggregation of knowledge about the sea in all its aspects-teaching, research, transfer of territorial development, social responsibility-maintains a policy of excellence and generating international partnerships that reflect this orientation. The aim of CEI·MAR is to become an international reference in the field of marine and maritime studies and become a magnet for talent in the institutions that comprise both founders as those Institutions reference to which grant them Seal of Excellence, are engines of such actions and recipients of benefits such joint action reports.

Under these assumptions, the Seal Badge of Excellence CEI·MAR born with the aim of distinguishing institutions, national and international, public and private, committed to the goals, mission and vision of CEI·MAR and able to contribute, through of the opportunities offered by the campus of International Excellence of the Sea, to the strengthening of CEI·MAR; while adding to their own activities involved recognition advertise consideration as reference institution for the Campus of Excellence.

The purpose of the Seal of Excellence is to become a certified reference both nationally and internationally, to strengthen the recognition of institutions committed to teaching, research, transfer and innovation in the marine and maritime fields. To this end, the identification of the institution with CEI·MAR is articulated, favoring their incorporation into the activities of the Campus and institutions that compose it and making participant in the aggregation model designed CEI·MAR.

universita-ferraraThe University of Ferrara in Italy receive the Seal of Excellence CEI·MAR on February 23, 2016, recognizing it as an institution of reference CEI·MAR. In accordance with the protocol for the label, we evaluate the intensity of the relationships that the Italian university has with CEI·MAR, particularly with the University of Cádiz, teaching and scientific cooperation specializing in marine studies, which tunes with the internationalization strategy of the CEI·MAR and has curdled in excellent results as a double master’s degree and, more recently, a double international doctorate

Seal significantly appreciates the activity of technical transfers and social media, as well as the coordinated research strategy. In this case we evaluate the excellence of teaching, research, transfer and social dissemination of the University of Ferrara for the Campus, which is apparent with the realization of an international doctorate in Earth Sciences and Marine and dual master’s degree in Applied Geology and Integrated Management of coastal Areas, specializing in coastal risk.

The International Doctorate in Sciences of the Earth and Sea (EMAS), which has the support of the International Campus of Excellence del Mar, allows 2015/16 from this course to students of the universities involved enrolled in the program get after the defense his doctoral thesis, a dual degree PhD. His next intention, as have advanced, is to convert the International Doctorate in Erasmus Plus with the participation of a third European university also linked to the CEI·MAR. Also in the aspect of academic collaboration, there is a double master, now called Master in Coastal and georesources Management course taught from 2007-2008 by both institutions.

In the field of research, emphasize again predoctoral bags associated with inter-university doctoral program EMAS and mobilities for such predoctoral that they are held by both institutions. In the area of projects they have been and are collaborations between the two institutions, both in European projects of the Seventh Framework Programme (MICORE Project) and national calls (GERICO project, VUCOCLIMA project) with joint participation of researchers from both institutions.

In the field of transfer on the one hand there is the transfer of knowledge which involved the MICORE project for different end users, primarily focused on public bodies related to the management of natural hazards, and were the recipients of the new technology developed for early warning systems in case of flooding. It also highlights the joint participation of both institutions in the project River Delta System Analysis and Management in Practise (RAMIP) within the Lifelong Learning Programme Erasmus, as Intensive Programme, where they jointly developed new methodologies both fieldwork and treatment data with students of the institutions involved.
