“What I love about ICYMARE is that it states that every young scientist, at his own scale, has something to tell about the marine environment. It fosters connection between us, leading to an increased openness to the diversity of research in marine sciences.”

YVONNE SCHADEWELL, MSc

University of Oldenburg, Germany

“To me, ICYMARE means connecting young researchers across the world, through their passion about the ocean and building the base of future science.”

Dr. FERDINAND ESSER

ICBM, University of Oldenburg, Germany

“ICYMARE is an excellent format to present current research topics to early career scientists and a platform to build up a scientific network. The bottom up conference organized by Master’s students and doctoral candidates strengthens their key competencies besides their scientific work.”

NF-POGO CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE SCHOLARS 2019/2020

Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI), Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research, Germany

“Early career scientist conferences such as ICYMARE are a great way to network and build your confidence as a presenter of posters and oral presentations. I am from a very isolated region so this is an amazing opportunity for me to meet like-minded scientists and make friends who share my enthusiasm for the marine environment!”

JULIA JUNG, BSc

University of Gent, Belgium

“I love the bottom-up approach of enabling young researchers to build this conference and network together! Having such a platform allows our generation to not only collaborate better, but to really be able to define how we would like to shape this field in the future, which topics our priorities are and think about our roles and responsibilities as young marine researchers for the environment and in society. I am really proud and happy to be a part of this network and can’t wait to see the things we’ll do together.”

AUDREY GRANGER, MSc

Edinburgh Napier University, Great Britain

“ICYMARE to me is a platform that provides an incredible and unique opportunity for a network of fresh, hungry and passionate young scientists to present their research and meet like minded professionals. It is so much more than a conference; ICYMARE is an inspiring, exciting and supportive movement that I can’t wait to attend this year!”

NATALIE PRINZ, MSc
