2. DGM Meeresforum and YOUMARES

This year the German Society for Marine Research (DGM e.V.) celebrates its 35th anniversary. On this occasion, the DGM-Meeresforum will be hosted with the aim to promote the exchange and networking of stakeholders in marine research in Germany and develop perspectives for future research goals. Pulse lectures by renowned faculty members and innovative formats such as the "Barcamp" are intended to stimulate discussion between scientists, business and the public and develop ideas for future workshops on selected courses of action within the exploration of the Sea.
The event starts with the DGM General Assembly (September 14th, 2015) and ends with an "Icebreaker" (September 16th, 2015), which is jointly organized with YOUMARES 6. On a boat trip on the river Weser and a mentor program the close cooperation with young scientists is searched.
