Background

The Trevor Platt Science Foundation (TPSF) was launched in August 2021 to promote #capacitybuilding #research and #education in #oceansciences, with a strong emphasis on international networking, to nurture the next generation of young scientists and give them the tools they need to succeed in their chosen careers.
