NORA Student Group

By the beginning of 2024, the NORA student group was launched. The aim of this group is to enhance and strengthen the collaboration between students of all educational levels (bachelor, master, PhD, PGR) working in the field of European oysters.

We’re hoping to create a friendly and accessible platform for all students and early career researchers working on and around native oysters to meet, exchange ideas and feel more actively represented within the NORA community. 

We will be scheduling regular meetings throughout the year, where students will have the opportunity to meet one another, share their own research, and learn from other students and guest speakers.

Whether you have just started the first year of your BSc or have recently passed your viva, we welcome all students and early career researchers who are interested in native oyster restoration to get involved in the student group.
