SURVEY - Needs of Employers in Australia's Blue Economy

15 Nov 2018 11:32 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The National Marine Science Committee is conducting  research to investigate the compatibility between postgraduate training and the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector. The project is intended to contribute to the development of university training that better meets the emerging needs of Australia’s ‘Blue Economy’.

My name is Tracy MacKeracher and I am the Research Officer on the project, based at James Cook University. We are conducting a short (5 – 10 min) online survey to understand the professional staff needs of employers in Australia's marine/aquatic sector. The survey can be completed by a senior representative of any non-university employer in the sector (e.g. consulting, research, fishing, non-profit sector, offshore oil & gas, marine insurance, tourism, government, boat/ship building, construction, ports & shipping). I have attached an information sheet, which provides additional details.

Would any AMPI members be willing to complete this important anonymous online survey?

If so, please contact me at tracy.mackeracher@my.jcu.edu.au.

By participating in this study, you would be supporting research that contributes to the development of university training that better meets the needs of employers in Australia’s marine/aquatic sector.

I have tried to be brief as this is a preliminary e-mail to scope your interest. I am happy to answer any questions you may have about the project and, upon request, the results can be made available to you once the project is completed. 

Warm regards,


Tracy MacKeracher
