YOUMARES 5: Awarding the Best Talk Award to Duygu Sevgi Sevilgen (POLMAR alumni, right), Isabel Richter, and Ines Stuhldreier.
Polona Itkin (Climate Sciences/ Sea Ice Physics) has been able to attend seminars and make business trips thanks to the POLMAR family support programme. She took her young family with her and POLMAR covered the additional expenses. There is no minimum age limit for becoming a marine scientist!
Our former POLMAR members Nina Keul and Sven Kranz had gone to the US for a Postdoc position. Meanwhile, Sven accepted an assistant professorship at Florida State University and Nina is back in Germany at the Institute of Geosciences at Kiel University.
