UM joins international marine study

March 26, 1997

The University of Maryland Biotechnology Institute and colleges in Sweden and Norway are creating a trans-Atlantic virtual university to study marine life.

Maryland students and those at the University of Bergen in Norway and the University of Goteberg in Sweden will be linked through the Internet and by real-time video teleconferencing. Members of the faculties will research environmental problems in the Chesapeake Bay and the Baltic Sea.

The program eventually will offer graduate degrees.
