Bemvindo GEOMAR – five intense days in Cabo Verde
Team Cabo Verde meets Team GEOMAR in Mindelo.
From 20 to 24 January 2023, a delegation from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel visited Cabo Verde to discuss further research cooperations with regional partners and to strengthen the role of the Ocean Science Centre Mindelo (OSCM). This plattform for support and exchange was put into operation in 2017 by GEOMAR and the Cape Verdean Instituto do Mar (IMar). The focus of the OSCM is on logistical and technological services to facilitate marine and atmospheric research in the region, regional networking as well as academic training. In addition, GEOMAR Director Professor Dr. Katja Matthes welcomed the participants of the “Ocean Race Summit” at the OSCM, a high-profile summit on sustainable ocean protection in the framework of the global regatta “The Ocean Race”.
