Over the course of two and a half days, 98 Nansen Legacy senior researchers and 44 Nansen Legacy early career scientists (ECS) gathered to share scientific findings. There were 6 plenary sessions with 32 science presentations including two talks by the reference group. After the plenary sessions, four workshops spanning cross-cutting issues across the project were held. Fruitful discussions continued also during the two afternoon poster sessions, where 42 posters were presented.
The annual meeting was complemented by a get-together of the Nansen Legacy leader team, a meeting with the Scientific Advisory Board, and the ECS Recruit Forum (with a focus on career building).
With this full program, the week in Bergen was highly successful. There were ample possibilities to learn about new scientific findings—from the field, experiments, and models. Furthermore, participants could cultivate their networks across disciplines and institutions and were able to meet the representatives from the reference group to discuss user perspectives and needs. And last, but not least, engaged in-person discussions during the coffee breaks and over dinner were possible. The process of placing results in a larger context has begun!
Thanks to everyone for contributing and participating in the 2022 annual meeting.
