Unit:The Planning and Training Center

    The National Academy of Marine Research (NAMR) is the dedicated agency of marine research affairs in Taiwan long engaged in basic marine surveys and research and applied research. In cooperation with the national policy, the NAMR engaged in relevant research this year (2021) and continued to engage in marine industry-government-academia cooperation. In order to advocate and display the plan results and demonstrate self-research momentum, the National Academy of Marine Research (NAMR) successfully completed the 2021end-of-year result presentation on December 29, 2021. The annual results displayed received recognition and affirmation from controller Tien Chiu-Jing, experts, scholars, and guests.
    A result presentation was held today (29th). The Ocean Affairs Council’s “2020 Outstanding Civil Servants in the Promotion of Marine Affairs” and the Ocean Conservation Administration’s “2020 Outstanding Counties and Cities in Marine Environment Management and Assessment Plan” awarding ceremonies were conjunctively held. The National Academy of Marine Research (NAMR) displayed this year’s (2021) result content focuses of the presentation. The all-inclusive contents included: Completing the publication of nine professional books (including four volumes of monthly statistical annual reports on Taiwan’s sea waves, wind, current, and tide observed, winning works at the “Ocean Fun” National Children’s Painting Contest, a book titled Ocean Affairs, Taiwan’s Ocean-Coast, etc.); completing various project research plans (OCEAN TAIWAN-Surveys on the safety of beaches nationwide and the construction of sea recreation information and safety monitoring system plans, the development and promotion of the key technologies of ocean current energy, National Ship Model Laboratory’s multi-function tank setup plans, etc.). Keeping in line with the academia and practical needs, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), the Biodiversity Research Center, Academia Sinica, and public and private universities have engaged in exchanges and MOU signing.
