Visiting scientists in 2013

In order to promote synergies within the Cluster and offer international visitors a more interesting and useful stay in Kiel, the Future Ocean will gather and publish information about who will be visiting Cluster scientists when, who will be hosting and the events planned around the visit. We hope to avoid the “If only I had known ‘Jane Doe’ was going to be here…” phenomenon and make research stays more profitable for both the visitors and the Cluster. Please send information and questions about international visitors to Nancy Smith (
