Objectif Terre : Bassin Méditerranéen
Objective Earth: Mediterranean Basin – Aix-en-Provence, France
OT-Med (Objectif Terre : Bassin Méditerranéen) is a Laboratoire d’excellence (LABEX) whose objective is to create an interdisciplinary Earth Institute with high international profile, focusing on the environment and sustainable development of Mediterranean and semi-arid environments. The Mediterranean basin has been a key area of human-environment interactions for thousands of years, representing significant risks as well as huge opportunities for sustainable development. A new integrated approach will help to guide decision-making in the region based on new scientific findings drawn from research in marine and terrestrial systems. This centre aims to increase the international visibility of our research as well as to consolidate the bridge between physical-biological sciences and the socio-economic world.
