Data Center Description
The Plymouth Marine Laboratory [PML] is an independent and impartial collaborative centre of the Natural Environment Research Council [NERC]. On the 1st April 2002 PML transferred from being a wholly owned NERC research centre to form an independent organization with charitable status. The new PML Group comprises PML (a company limited by guarantee, registered in England & Wales, with charitable status) and a trading subsidiary - to facilitate the exploitation of PML research and its products and to provide a more appropriate interface for working with industrial and commercial partners.
The primary driver of research activity at PML is to carry out fundamental, core strategic and applied research of a world-class standard. Research at PML has always been timely and highly relevant to UK and international societal needs. The core research program has the mission to contribute to the issues of global change and sustainability, which are of worldwide importance.
