Why donating?

ICYMARE is organized bottom-up by a group of dedicated marine early career scientists as part of the Bremen Society of Natural Science, a non-profit society located in Bremen. We love our volunteer work for ICYMARE and to provide an opportunity for young marine researchers to connect on international level. However, to organize a yearly conference and open access publication we do need to cover our costs.

ICYMARE has generally no budget and is completely financed by the participants’ registration fee at the annual conference event (though kept affordable for students) and sponsors. If you also want to support ICYMARE, we are very grateful about your contribution.

We welcome general donations but it’s also possible to make a donation which should be specifically used for a certain intention, e.g., the conference event, the open access book publication costs, for travel grants to students from low-income countries, etc. If you would like to make a donation to support a certain ICYMARE purpose, please contact us at moc.e1603336722ramyc1603336722i@oll1603336722eh1603336722.
