Membership in the Future Ocean Network

After the end of the funding for the Cluster of Excellence "The Future Ocean", the cooperation of the previous Future Ocean partner institutions will be represented in the Future Ocean Network. The Future Ocean Network remains part of the marine sciences priority research focus Kiel Marine Science (KMS), Center for Interdisciplinary Marine Sciences at Kiel University (CAU).

The aim of the Future Ocean Network is to actively maintain the long-standing cooperation between researchers and partners from politics, business and society and to provide information on activities and initiatives that are organised across institutes and disciplines. In addition to formats for exchange and dialogue on topics in marine and climate research, the network will provide the framework for new, large collaborative projects.

A formal membership for the network does not have to be applied for. The Future Ocean Network is open to all interested parties who have a connection to the research or activities of the network in terms of content or who would like to establish one in the future.
