Welcome to a centre conceived one century ago to fight against tuberculosis and bone disease; which remains in the XXI century to promote research, education and dissemination. The centre is devoted to scientific and technological research; to teaching activities of specialised education (e.g., postgraduate studies and doctorates), and to science dissemination. It might also provide to industry and administration technical advice in the field of its expertise: the interaction between the Ocean, the ecosystem and the human health.
PiE-UPV/EHU aimed at protecting both ocean health and human wealth and at promoting environmental science, technology and awareness. PiE-UPV/EHU is small but wide-scoped, well-defined but flexible, ad hoc designed for its purposes but modular, dynamic but long-lasting, with strict controls necessary for excellence but wide windows open towards people, and homeland rooted but open-to-globe.
The Research Centre for Experimental Marine Biology and Biotechnology “Plentziako Itsas Estazioa” (PiE-UPV/EHU; Plentzia Marine Station) is an institution without juridical entity created by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).
