The mission of MI International is to enhance the capacity of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University and its community partners in the public, private and institutional sectors and overall to participate effectively in a global society and economy.
Their approach hinges on three factors:
-A focus on quality
-Knowledge and experience
A persistent focus on quality and attention to detail is inherent in every MI International activity. The international marketplace is highly competitive and in order to be successful, project proposals must be thoroughly researched, must respond to the priorities of all constituents, and must be clearly and professionally presented.
In the course of its work, MI International has built extensive knowledge and understanding of international development issues, agency structures and priorities. MI International uses the expertise of MI's 300+ personnel for project implementation. Approximately 130 MI personnel have been engaged internationally. To date MI International has secured more than 250 funded projects in over 50 countries. The majority of MI's international projects are rural community-based with wide-ranging experience in aquaculture and agri-foods post-harvest particularly with non-traditional learners.
Partnership is a key dimension of MI International's activities and projects. They form alliances with public, private and institutional sector organizations, building on the capabilities of each partner and broadening the experience of all participants.
