World-class institutes unite
As part of a move towards global excellence, the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) is encompassing the aquaculture, aquatic animal health, marine conservation and fisheries management activities currently conducted at AMC, to be known as IMAS Launceston.
These programs will be transferred to IMAS for administration, but testamurs will be co-badged with AMC from 2014. The collaboration builds upon the innovative marine research and teaching programs currently delivered by IMAS in Hobart. Strengthened by investment in new academic leaders and research facilities, it will bring teaching and research expertise from two world-class institutes together to create a state-wide agency for a vital industry.
