The Dutch royal couple, who visited the federal state of Bremen, also took part. At a symposium, the researchers from Germany and the Netherlands informed King Willem-Alexander and Queen Máxima about their joint activities on climate change, biodiversity and nature conservation.
The scientific cooperation among the partner institutions goes back many years. "Our goal is to further expand the long-standing cooperation with our partners in Holland. Within the framework of the Cluster of Excellence 'Ocean Floor' we will carry out joint research projects and expeditions", says Michael Schulz, Director of MARUM.
