YOU­MA­RES 7

Peop­le and the 7 Seas – Inter­ac­tion and Innovation

Thank you very much for your atten­dance and con­tri­bu­ti­on to YOU­MA­RES 6. It was a gre­at plea­su­re to meet you all at the net­work mee­ting, and we hope that YOU­MA­RES was fruit­ful and rewar­ding for you!

126 par­ti­ci­pants – 10 ses­si­ons – 47 pre­sen­ta­ti­ons – 29 posters

Pre­ce­ded by the annu­al mee­ting of the Ger­man Socie­ty of Mari­ne Rese­arch (DGM) and the DGM-Forum, YOU­MA­RES 7 was again a gre­at suc­cess whe­re we could enjoy the various talks and work­shops as well as spen­ding time tog­e­ther. Around 110 par­ti­ci­pants joi­ned YOU­MA­RES 7 at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ham­burg. Ele­ven ses­si­ons gave an insight into the rese­arch fiel­ds of young rese­ar­chers and stu­dents. Many ide­as and con­ta­cts were exch­an­ged which is the main idea – and it was tru­ly inspiring.

Lisa Hent­schel from the Oce­an­phi­lo­so­phers wro­te: “Around 110 par­ti­ci­pants joi­ned YOU­MA­RES 7 at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ham­burg. Ele­ven ses­si­ons gave an insight into the rese­arch fiel­ds of young rese­ar­chers and stu­dents. It is one of the char­ming aspects of YOU­MA­RES that also Bache­lor and Mas­ter stu­dents have an audi­ence to pre­sent their work. Young sci­en­tists orga­nis­ed ever­ything infor­mal­ly, always a hand to give and a hand to recei­ve help, that in the end ever­yo­ne was sit­ting with an ‘UR-Knall’- beer phi­lo­so­phi­sing about how we can real­ly mana­ge EU-fishe­ries or dan­cing their PhDs in the Volt-Bar… Thanks for that experience!”
