"Scientific Diving in Germany, Europe and Beyond"
The Scientific Diving Symposium 2017 will take place from 02.11.17 to 03.11.17 in Bremerhaven and is collaboratively organised by the Alfred-Wegener-Institute Helmholtz Centre of Polar and Marine Research (AWI/Bremerhaven), the Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT/Bremen) and the Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum (DSM/Bremerhaven). As in previous years the Symposium shall be a platform for scientific divers/researchers without diving skills to present their recent work, get together to network and establish new professional contacts.
The 2-day event, as a fusion of symposium and workshop will be introduced by an Evening-Icebreaker (1st Nov. 2017 at Deutsches Schiffahrtsmuseum). The Symposium will emphasise on the following 4 key-issues:
1st Session - International reciprocity in scientific diving
2nd Session – Innovative methods in aquatic research related to Scientific Diving
3rd Session – Capacity Development – Forward-thinking implementation of German/European standards abroad
4th Session – Recent underwater research - Presentation of results by young scientists
