The regular exchange between researchers from Kiel Marine Science (KMS) and the Future Ocean Network with the University of Gothenburg (UGOT), which has been ongoing since the end of 2019, has been so promising that cooperation has been successively intensified. The two universities and their partners have many synergies, similarities and potential areas for joint projects in research and education. The multitude of disciplines involved at both universities and the orientation towards trans- and interdisciplinary research are also arguments for a closer connection, which should lead to joint research proposals in the future. In order to explore promising topics, a series of workshops is to be implemented in 2021, which will be organised under the leadership of the Kiel Marine Science (KMS) office.
