Interdisciplinary Marine Science in NWVM bridges the gap between natural sciences and social sciences, the latter again including widely different fields such as economics, law and political sciences, as well as humanities. Scientific exchange on a local, regional, national and international level is crucial for this effort; especially internationalization is an important benchmark for the development of an interdisciplinary research agenda. It is essential in interdisciplinary research to support the development of new scientific alliances and to lay the foundation for knowledge generation and further collaboration.
The NWVM offers an excellent scientific environment for researchers from all disciplines to develop and discuss interdisciplinary research topics and compatibility of findings to ensure knowledge transfer and integration.
One important kick-off to further develop interdisciplinary marine science was the international NWVM Conference ”Between use and protection of the marine environment – knowledge generation in interdisciplinary research contexts", on 18 and 19 November 2013 at Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg (HWK), Institute for Advanced Study in Delmenhorst.
As we also address internationals we keep this part of our website entirely in English.
