YOUMARES 11 and Covid-19: Despite the current Covid-19 pandemic, we ensure you that YOUMARES 11 conference will take place under any circumstances either physical or virtual!

In a world facing numerous environmental emergencies, the challenges for scientists and engineers to define problems and find solutions are becoming increasingly urgent. We believe in the power of shared knowledge and want to JOIN FORCES from the marine realm at this year’s YOUMARES 11 conference. No matter if you are a marine scientist, marine engineer, innovator in the marine field, belonging to an NGO, a social scientist or an expert in marine governance and policy WE INVITE YOU to create an interdisciplinary hotspot with us.

YOUMARES, decoded as – YOUng MARine RESearchers – is an international marine conference for early career researchers initiated by the working group on “Studies and Education” of the German Society for Marine Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Meeresforschung – DGM) in 2009.

This year’s YOUMARES will be co-hosted by the GEOMAR – Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, taking place at the GEOMAR Campus “Seefischmarkt” in Kiel.

In 2020 YOUMARES wants to create a platform for intra- and transdisciplinary exchange as we believe in the power of shared skills and knowledge under the headline – JOINING FORCES – Science, Tech and People.

We are calling for advanced students, early career scientists, and young innovators to host a session at YOUMARES 11. As a group or as a single person you have the unique opportunity to give your science or expertise a platform. You define your session, invite your speakers, design your program, and finally chair your session.
