How does the Future Forum work?
The Future Ocean Forum aims at a broad range of strategic activities related to ocean and coastal research.
The members of the Future Forum on the Oceans propose thematic focal points, which are prioritised in consultation with all members. From these, interdisciplinary working groups develop concrete products.
The Future Ocean Forum deals with the following tasks in the form of discussions, comments, strategy papers or memoranda:
- Integrative future topics of marine research
- Basic and applied issues of interdisciplinary marine research with a focus on strategic and funding policy perspectives in marine research.
- Strategic orientation and structure of German marine research
- Intensification of cooperation within German marine research including the development of joint research activities
- Intensification of cooperation within European and international marine research
