Scotland’s aquatic environment forms a significant component of our natural heritage, and plays a key role in supporting both a varied range of ecosystems, and an array of economically important activities.
The matrix has been trialled in terms of its potential use in helping to align activities of the partners, and to identity science gaps both in terms of current needs, and anticipated future drivers and uncertainties.
CAMERAS brings together all the main Scottish public sector funders of rural, environmental and marine science and increasingly aligns the annual science spend in this area from the Scottish Government, which is in excess of £135m. Scotland has an international reputation for scientific excellence. This science has a vital role in helping us to tackle future challenges such as climate change and food security. The coordination between the organisations involved in the CAMERAS initiative forms an important part of the scientific underpinning of government policy.
