National Ocean Sciences Conference


We would like to invite you to the very first edition of the National Ocean Sciences Conference in the Netherlands, this year taking place at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center on Thursday 6 June 2024. From the shore to the open ocean, from the equator to the poles, from the natural sciences to humanities. Be there to help shape the community and hear what your fellow researchers are doing, expand your network and get inspired!

Sharing knowledge at national level
Scientists and scholars in the Netherlands study marine processes from a multitude of scientific disciplines to better understand how they can provide sustainable solutions to address the big societal questions that are posed by the climate and biodiversity crises. As stated by the UN Decade of the Ocean Sciences, it is essential to share this knowledge also at a national level to move forward together in this quest. And what better timing to do so than just before the United Nations designated World Ocean Day?

Full program and other details can be found on the conference website.

On World Ocean Day, Saturday June 8, outreach activities for the general public will be held at the Naturalis Biodiversity Center and other locations across the Netherlands. Please let us know via the conference registration form if you would be interested in contributing by e.g. offering a talk, experiment, or any other way.
