ITMEMS 4 combined the exposure to practical activities with targeted training to bridge common or shared gaps in knowledge, science and experience by:

  • Encouraging knowledge exchange and cooperation;
  • Demonstrating relevant application of technology and science in management strategies and programmes;
  • Providing targeted training and skills development to facilitate uptake of available approaches and tools; and
  • Developing networks for professional development and onward learning beyond ITMEMS4
