Upcoming Scoping Workshop within the VW-Profile "Exploration"
From Ocean Exploration to Societal Action: Enhancing interdisciplinary collaboration for the UN Decade of Oceans.
The global threat of the world’s oceans becomes increasingly tangible. Within the ongoing UN Ocean Decade (2021-2030), the workshop assembles 30 marine researchers from the natural and the social sciences to develop cross-disciplinary transformative research for the protection and sustainable use of the ocean in the Anthropocene. We bring together established marine experts to profile the state and future of German marine research along three key issues: a) empirical methods, b) marine science policy, and c) collaborative research. The workshop concludes with a joint position paper presenting strategies for future interdisciplinary marine collaboration.
