In Germany the majority of researchers holding a Ph.D. continue their careers outside academia and often personal contacts help starting a career in the private sector. Presenting R & D projects at trade fairs or visiting them offer excellent opportunities for getting into contact with this employment sector. ‘The Future Ocean’ aims at facilitating these contacts.
