Science webinars

Each month, EMB hosts an hour-long webinar on the marine science linked to EMB publications and activities. Webinars take place on the third Thursday of every month from 13:00-14:00 CET.

The webinars showcase research that is done at EMB’s Member institutes, research conducted by the authors of EMB publications, and research with relevance to EMB publications and activities. They are hosted for free on ZOOM by EMB and are open to anyone with an interest in marine science. The webinar is also livestreamed on the EMB YouTube channel. The recording and presentation are made available on the EMB website and YouTube channel after the event for later viewing. Some of the YouTube recordings also have English subtitles available.

The format of the webinar includes a short opening by the European Marine Board moderator and up to 30 minutes of presentation by one or two people, with an opportunity for the audience to ask questions.
