As I never had the chance to participate in a YOUMARES yet, co-organising YOUMARES is for me a new kind of experiment to bring people together that do what I love: Marine Science

The communication of good study results is probably as important as the results itself. YOUMARES harbors the potential for us young career scientists to start learning the essential skills as early as possible, while bringing together the scientific elite of tomorrow.
