(19.10.2016) The seventh edition of the Brazilian Oceanography Congress will take place from 5 to 9 November in Salvador, the capital of Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia. This year’s event will focus on the topics of ocean acidification, natural marine resources, paleoceanography, and man and ocean and on teaching and the labour market in the marine science sector in relation to climate change and its impact on the ocean and coastal regions.

Representatives of the Research in Germany initiative will be there with an information stand in the conference’s exhibition area and will provide interested conference attendees with information on funding programmes and opportunities for exchange and cooperation. There will also be a Research in Germany Lunch Session on Monday, 7 November between 12 and 1.30pm, during which early career researchers will be able to learn more about Germany as a place of research and obtain information about scientific funding programmes. Professor Dr. Till Hanebuth from the University of Bremen’s Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (MARUM) has also been invited by Research in Germany to give an insight into the research landscape in Germany and present his own work.
