University of the Basque Country/ Euskal Herriko University (UPV/EHU)

Plentzia Marine Station is an institution of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), devoted to
scientific/technological research, education, science dissemination and environmental awareness. It
provides scientific expert/technical advice to stakeholders. Research is focused, first, upon conducting high
quality experimentation under controlled wet-lab and field conditions; second, upon studying phenomena
in the areas of cell biology, molecular biology and genetics, experimental physiology, marine ecosystem
health observation, experimental toxicology, pathology, stress biology and biopharmacy; and, finally, upon
applying advanced experimentation methodologies with marine organisms (in vitro assays, omics,
spectroscopy, cryotechnology, microscopy, image analysis, data treatment). The Ocean & Health Research
Unit is aimed at developing tools for marine ecosystem health assessment (biomarkers, bioassays,
biosensors, and biodiversity) and seafood quality/safety assurance. We optimize automation of modelling and calculation of integrative health indices in biomonitoring programmes. EHU is connected with Bilbao
by Metro, at 15 min driving distance from the main Campus and Bilbao Airport & Technological Park.
EHU will offer TA, will lead NA4 and contribute to all networking work packages and JRA1, JRA3 and
JRA4 and JRA5.
