Senia Febrica wins University of Strathclyde’s Impact Award 

One Ocean Hub Knowledge Exchange Associate, Dr Senia Febrica, has won this year’s University of Strathclyde’s (UK) Humanities & Social Sciences Impact Award in the Early Career category. Senia’s submission to the Award focused on “Maritime Security in the Indo-Pacific Region”, and whilst this research theme is not one of the focus areas of the One Ocean Hub, being part of the Hub has helped Senia to connect with researchers and stakeholders which the Hub is working with. For instance, in 2020, collaboration with Prof Jeremy Hills (University of South Pacific, Fiji) and the government of Fiji (Ministry of Economy) enabled her to contribute to the development of Fiji’s first national ocean policy, particularly its security pillar. The policy has been accepted by the Fiji parliament in 2021 and has set an ambitious goal for 100 per cent sustainable management of the ocean by 2030.
