3. A special venue for a special event!
Youmares 3 is organized in close cooperation with EMB Fraunhofer Research
Institution for Marine Biotechnology and its local head Prof. Dr. Charli
Kruse. The Institute concentrates on fields of cellular technology,
aquatic biotechnology and cell-based medical techniques.
We have been looking hard for a decent venue to host this special event
and WE HAVE FOUND IT!
The Hanseatic City of Luebeck is, situated at the river Trave, Germany's
gate to the Baltic. The Brick Stone Gothic gives the Queen of the Hanse a
unique flair of maritime modernity with historical memory. Niederegger
Marzipan is probably as well known as Thomas Mann's first novel
In 2012 Luebeck is celebrating having been elected as the German "City of
Science". http://www.hanse-trifft-humboldt.de (only in German)
The conference venue will be "Die Gemeinnuetzige" in down-town Luebeck.
Plenty of accomodation and culinary opportunites in close proximity.
