We are excited to announce that this year’s conference
will take place from 13th – 16th October 2020 in Kiel
JOINING FORCES – Science, Tech, and People
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 was organised for the first time in 2010 as network meeting for YOUng MArine RESearchers. Within the German Society for Marine Research (DGM) the Working Group on Studies and Education was founded to organise that yearly event.
Since 2010 YOUMARES has developed into the largest meeting for young marine scientists in Germany. It is now well-known among young researchers as an excellent platform to present results in a professional atmosphere that, at the same time, still manages
to avoid the sometimes overwhelming character of established scientific meetings. The concept is to exchange ideas in an easy-to-talk-to group of similar minds. In other words, it has grown up while remaining young at heart.
YOUMARES is a bottom-up organized conference and is non-profit oriented, which means that the work is done by volunteers and the conference costs are mainly covered by sponsors as well as our conference fee.
YOUMARES 11 and Covid-19
