The National Programme of the Federal Government
Coastal, marine and polar research for sustainability
Much of the research on protecting our seas, coasts and poles is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) through the research programme "MARE:N - Coastal, Marine and Polar Research for Sustainability" under the umbrella of the Research Framework Programme "Research for Sustainable Development" (FONA).
KDM supports the MARE:N programme with strategy processes (e.g. via the Coastal Strategy Group) and events.
