Academic Exchange between Kiel and Oslo universities to collaborate on researching NORwegian coastal ecosystem Dynamics (ekoNOrd)

Long-term solutions to potential future problems in terrestrial and coastal ecosystems will demand evidence-based decision-making and policy planning which is only possible through multidisciplinary and international research.

Ensuring the sustainability of coastal ecosystems, where land and water meet, under a changing climate requires a holistic nexus approach, considering the links between the water, food, energy, and ecology (WFEE) sectors.

The ekoNOrd workshop encourages researchers at Kiel and Oslo universities with research interests linked to coastal ecosystems to get together, exchange ideas and information, and innovate for initiating future collaboration and research projects.

The first phase of the workshop will take place on 30 - 31 May 2022 at the University of Oslo, Blindern. The workshops aim at:

  • Discussing the state-of-the-art for climate and coastal ecosystem research
  • Investigating methods and tools that might prove useful for collaborative research projects on integrating terrestrial and coastal ecosystem science
  • Exploring the available observational products such as field measurements, reanalyses, and Earth observations
  • Enhancing capacity and team building between the institutions
  • Discussing the funding opportunities and a potential timeline for continued cooperation

Registration is closed now but you can still join the event. For the meeting agenda and Zoom link, please send an e-mail to the UiO contact person.
