We believe in the power of shared knowledge and want to JOIN FORCES from the marine realm at this year’s YOUMARES 11 conference.

The conference for YOUng MArine RESearchers is an international marine conference for early career scientists initiated by 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 from the 13th – 16th October 2020.
