Partners for marine research
Alliances for ocean protection
INNOVASPACE - Space without borders develops global, interdisciplinary scientific projects and educational initiatives. The research projects are also correspondingly diverse and covers the following topics:
- Human Space Exploration
- Aerospace Medicine
- Digital Health
- Extreme Physiology
INNOVASPACE's mission is to facilitate the creation of a global network of professionals, researchers, entrepreneurs and students collaborating on the topic of space and extreme environments. Technological and scientific research and development, educational initiatives, and innovative entrepreneurial projects are promoted and implemented with the end of benefiting society through the creation of new knowledge.
climate impact research
global sustainability in an interdisciplinary manner
THE POTSDAM INSTITUTE FOR CLIMATE IMPACT RESEARCH. The dual mission of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), member of the Leibniz Association, is to expand the scientific limits of climate research for global sustainability in an interdisciplinary manner, and to offer solutions for a safe and just climate future.
the research methods focus on system analysis and data integration for global climate protection. The institute even has its own supercomputer to carry out complex numerical climate simulations. In addition, the PIK actively conveys knowledge to decision-makers in politics, business and society. All of this is applied science, and all done for a cleaner future.
With around 400 staff drawn from the entire planet, the PIK contributes to the level of knowledge of the global scientific community by publishing in high-ranking, peer-reviewed international journals, and by getting involved in numerous partnerships and networks.
conduct marine research
strategic partners for sustainability
The German Alliance for Marine Research connects university and non-university institutions who conduct marine research and cooperate with strategic partners to reinforce the sustainable handling of coasts, seas and oceans.
International Marine Consortium
association of marine research institutions
The German Marine Research Consortium (KDM) was founded in 2004 as an association of marine research institutions from Germany. Since 2018, the association has focussed on the strategic capability of the German marine research community as well as networking within the broader international community. In doing so, the KDM works closely with the German Alliance for Marine Research, which was founded in 2019.
Marine Biodiversity Research
benthological and plankton studies
The Senckenberg Research Institute consists of two departments,The Marine Research Institute (MEFO) and the German Centre for Marine Biodiversity Research (DZMB). Research focuses on long-term benthological and plankton studies to characterize regional climate and biodiversity changes. In addition, The Senckenberg Institute also conducts research on geoecological biosedimentary systems, such as oyster and deep coral reefs, sediment dynamics, and the assessment of the environmental impact of deep-sea mining.
advanced sustainability studies
transformative and transdisciplinary research
The IASS (Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies) conducts research with the aim of understanding, promoting and shaping processes of social change towards sustainability. The institute develops understanding of problems and solution options in collaborations between science, politics, administration, business, and civil society. The research approach is transformative and transdisciplinary.
