Science Year 2016*17 - Seas and Oceans

The Institute for the Law of the Sea and International Marine Environmental Law (ISRIM) is leading the scientific discourse and public debate project 'Free Seas? - A Legal Order for the Seas and Oceans'. The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and is a contribution to open science in the context of the German Science Year 2016*17 - Seas and Oceans. The project includes the production of six videos on the legal aspects on the exploration, the usage and the protection of the seas and oceans, freely accessible at the ISRIM YouTube channel

 

 

The videos are accompanied by a series of public lectures at the Science Matinee "Knowledge at 11" at the House of Science Bremen (in German only):

  • 17.12.2016: Von der Freiheit der Meere zur einer Rechtsordnung der Meere
  • 18.02.2017: Vom Entdecken unbekannter Meeresgebiete zur wissenschaftlichen Meeresforschung
  • 22.04.2017: Schifffahrt, künstliche Inseln und Fischerei;
  • 17.06.2017: Offshore-Windenergie, Tiefseebergbau und marine Biotechnologie
  • 19.08.2017: Erhalt der Meeresumwelt und der Meeresbewohner
  • 16.09.2017 Vom Klimawandel bis zum Unterwasserkulturerbe

 


Further information on the series of public lectures at the Science Matinee "Knowledge at 11" may be found in the official flyer
