About the project

The Marine Knowledge Exchange Network (M-KEN) is an established and rapidly growing network of cross-sector marine stakeholders with mutually beneficial aims:

• To increase capacity in stakeholder relevant marine and coastal research
• To ensure marine and coastal research is delivering collaborative impact and application
• To help realise the social, economic and environmental potential of our seas and oceans


M-KEN is based within the internationally renowned School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA), and is run in partnership with the Centre of Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas).  


Get involved

Through the Marine Knowledge Exchange Network you can connect with the large network of expert marine scientists working in these institutions, and their globally connected networks.  If your business or institution has a specific problem to address or an idea to realise, we can put you in touch with experts in the relevant field, and help facilitate collaborative research, undertake specific research to meet your requirements, mutually develop research funding proposals to help you access UK government research or EU funds, or offer you bespoke consultancy services.
