Youmares 11 Joining Forces - Science, Tech, and People

YOUMARES is going for its 11th round. YOUMARES- the conference for YOUng MArine RESearchers- is an international marine conference for early career scientists initiated by the working group on “Studies and Education” of the German Society for Marine Research (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Meeresforschung - DGM) in 2009. Since then, the conference has successfully taken place annually in different marine research locations across northern Germany bringing together up to 300 participants from across Europe at a time. Over the years, YOUMARES has established in the scientific community and developed into a renowned meeting and exchange point for young marine scientists.

This year’s YOUMARES will be co-hosted by the GEOMAR - Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel , taking place at the “Zentrum für maritime Technologie und Seefischmarkt” in Kiel from the 15th - 18th September, 2020.

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 invite marine scientists, marine engineers, innovators in the marine field, NGOs, social scientists or experts in marine governance, policy or sustainability to create a hotspot of knowledge which is needed to address challenges lying ahead of us. During four days of our conference we connect scientist in scientific sessions, flash talks, poster sessions, workshops, skill-sharing and excursions. In perspective of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, YOUMARES will be an opportunity to link all marine sciences and remove boundaries between disciplines. Furthermore, we want to highlight and embrace necessary cooperation between science and industry at YOUMARES.
