hack4oceans is an intense 2-day hackathon-style event organised by DG MARE that will bring together undergraduate students in blue economy-relevant disciplines from across Europe, private sector stakeholders, and policymakers. Participants will co-create and explore ideas that link the goal of a healthy marine environment with new opportunities for jobs and prosperity. 

Challenges addressed at the event will include:

21st Fish Immunology / Vaccination Workshop

Since 1998. Wageningen University has been hosting these fish immunology / vaccination workshops. This year's workshop (funded in part by CSIC) presents participants with a choice between pursuing practical, hands-on training or a more research-based session on the latest advances in transcriptome and genome analysis. All participants will take part in a mix of lectures, discussions and poster sessions.

Cryosphere and Atmospheric Chemistry (CATCH) Workshop

The CATCH mission is to facilitate atmospheric chemistry research within the international community, with a focus on natural processes specific to cold regions of the Earth. Cold regions include areas which are seasonally or permanently covered by snow and ice, from the high mountains to the polar ice sheets and sea ice zones as well as regions where ice clouds that undergo chemistry are found.

GLOSS - Global Ocean Social Sciences dialogues and workshops

The aims of this event are to gather researchers in the human and social sciences to identify central issues and conditions for the involvement of the social sciences in the UN initiative.

Multidisciplinary workshop on biodiversity and health

The Royal Academy for Overseas Sciences (Belgium) will host a one-day workshop on the theme “Biodiversity and health” on 6th December 2019.

The workshop aims at fostering interdisciplinary exchanges between scientists from all disciplines with an interest in the topic, including: biologists, health professionals (epidemiologists, physicians, veterinarians, and pharmacists), agronomists, (agro)foresters, geographers, social scientists, and environmental scientists.
