Activities

CeMEB is a meeting place for marine evolution researchers. Each year, activities are organized for exchange of experience and to strengthen and develop the network. We see it as particularly important that young researchers and doctoral students get a good network for their future development.

CeMEB Autumn Assembly 2021

After two years of virtual meetings, the CeMEB network could finally gather at the Autumn Assembly 2021. The assembly was a hybrid event arranged at Tjärnö with some delegates participating on-line. More than 50 members from Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, France and the Netherlands attended. Stay tuned for new activities to come!

Previous activities

The CeMEB Assemblies are an important part of the strategy for promoting discussions and development of the research within the centre. Taking place twice every year, the programme always includes oral presentations of results, but also plenty of time for discussions and informal chatting. New research collaborations are often formed during these meetings. To stimulate the discussions recognised colleagues from national and international institutions are invited.

2021
