Laura Clemente Campos will complete an internship at Shoreham Port while studying for a masters in environment assessment and management at the University of Brighton.

Laura Clemente Campos will complete the post while studying for a masters in environment assessment and management at the University of Brighton.

Her work will contribute towards her coursework and simultaneously produce an ecology plan for the port.

Graduating in 2012 from Valencia University with a degree in environmental sciences, Laura then moved to England to improve her English and broaden her international experiences. She started work in a laboratory in Reading where she was the scientist’s assistant in the National Water Quality Instrumentation System as part of the Environment Agency.

The ecology plan will contribute to the development of a deeper understanding of the environment and ways in which the Port can positively affect and change its approaches to the day to day running of their premises.

Laura said: “When the port gave me the opportunity to work for them I had a look around the site and was fascinated by how many environmental projects they had developed. I like the Port’s vision for the future, especially the objectives established in the environmental policy. For an industrial working site they have a very positive attitude to prevent, reduce and compensate for any impact they may make.”
