The EuroSea itinerant exhibition has been touring Europe this autumn. From Germany to Spain, Ireland, and France, EuroSea has promoted the importance of ocean observation, monitoring, and forecasting at various events. Discover some pictures below! The full exhibition is available for download on our Outputs page.
The exhibition was launched at the International Conference for Young Marine Researchers (ICYMARE), held in Bremerhaven on 14 September 2022. Introduced by GEOMAR, the exhibition was an excellent way to promote the important work that EuroSea does and to inspire the next generation of scientists. EuroSea also held a workshop at the event to spark the youth engagement. On this occasion, we launched a brochure promoting a diversity of job profiles and work areas in ocean observing and forecasting. We hope this brochure will serve as a guide for early-career researchers to help find their own path.
We also held a EuroSea stand at the Science Day at GEOMAR on 15 September 2022. This was the first internal in-person event since the pandemic started, with almost 150 people attending. Alongside ~30 scientific posters, the event’s exhibition provided a good chance to communicate the objectives of EuroSea as well as exchange with the diversity of GEOMAR colleagues about ongoing science and projects.
The EuroSea exhibition was in several places simultaneously on the European Researchers’ Night at the end of September. SOCIB presented it in Spanish and Catalan and offered guided tours of its Research Vessel SOCIB, alongside a ‘Beer with a scientist’ activity and a workshop for kids. About 200 people joined SOCIB in Palma, Mallorca, where they were able to discover marine research and the impact of the ocean and marine sciences on our daily lives. GEOMAR presented the exhibition at the University of Kiel (CAU), with a total audience of approximately 200 people.
In November, the Irish Marine Institute put up the EuroSea exhibition at the Galway Science & Technology Festival. This is Ireland’s premier event for the promotion of STEM with the general public. At the end of the same month, our exhibition travelled to France for an international science communication conference CommOCEAN, where GEOMAR, the European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS), and European Marine Board promoted EuroSea and its communication tools. The event was hosted by the University of Montpelier and Ifremer, with many scientists and early-career researchers attending.
