IMBRSea 'Diving into Marine Minds' Symposium 2020

The International Master of Science in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea), supported by EMBRC, is holding its annual symposium for first- and second-year master's students from 1 to 3 July 2020. This year's edition is entirely virtual! The IMBRSea programme prepares students for the rapidly evolving demands of the blue bio-economy and research on the sustainable use of marine biological resources.

The International Master of Science in Marine Biological Resources (IMBRSea), is a joint master's degree programme organised by 11 European universities in the field of marine sciences, and is supported by EMBRC. The IMBRSea programme prepares students for the rapidly evolving demands of the blue bio-economy and research on the sustainable use of marine biological resources.

Every year IMBRSea's students, teachers, and employees get together at the end of the academic year for networking, and exchanging results and experiences. At this 'Diving into Marine Minds' Symposium, second-year students present their thesis work and graduate obtaining their International MSc Degree in Marine Biological Resources. The first-year students have the chance to follow the presentations and also present their own experiences obtained during their professional practice. Because of these exchanges, public presentations and final evaluations, the annual IMBRSea’s 'Diving into Marine Minds' Symposium is a key moment for every student in the master's programme. 

Due to the Covid-19 situation, the 2020 edition of the symposium is organised online. The IMBRSea programme hopes to still give the students the opportunity to share with fellow students, teacher and the public at large what they have done and learned during their experiences in the last academic year.

All 53 thesis presentations will be streamed live on the programme's YouTube channel. Students, supervisors and the public will be able to watch and ask questions to each presenting student. The full schedule of thesis presentations can be found here

First-year students, presenting their professional practice, will also have an online substitute for the normal live exhibition. Each student can create their own one-page website that can be visited during the symposium. Via separate meeting rooms, the public will be able to virtually pass by and talk with each exhibitor so they can explain their work, and engage with who is attending their exhibition. The full schedule of these three professional practice exhibitions, in which all 93 students will exhibit, can also be found on the website.

The IMBRSea programme hopes to meet you “virtually” at the "Diving into Marine Minds" symposium!
