Kiel Marine Science



Jun 04, 2018


Digital humanities are a rapidly evolving field of study, defined mainly by the use of computer-based methods and digital resources in humanities and cultural studies. While digital humanities have been considered a threat to and/or huge opportunity for classical humanities, they also entail innovative potential for the study of narratives in many subjects of humanities, social sciences, and beyond.

The purpose of the workshop is to bring together researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds to comprehensively discuss these approaches. Keeping in mind that participants start from different points of departure, the workshop is structured around introductory presentations and provides plenty of room for questions and answers.

Workshop Digital Ocean 2017

Sep 18, 2017

Digital transformation is changing all areas of our life, including the way we do research. So, how can we manage the digital transformation toward open ocean research?

Digital Ocean activities will explore and embrace the features of open science throughout the entire lifecycle within research, moving the emphasis of ocean science from ‘publishing as soon as possible’ towards ’sharing knowledge as early as possible’. Ocean research is based on data from a variety of observations, societal surveys, and ocean system simulations. The research benefits from improved sensor systems, more inclusive ocean system modelling, efficient data flow, and big data analytics and algorithmics combined with long-used open research software.

Scientists explore the implications for coastal areas within the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Strong sustainability in coastal areas: a conceptual interpretation of SDG 14

With the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development adopted in 2015, the United Nations have reaffirmed their aspirations for inclusive and universal sustainable development. Now, the task is on the UN member states to implement the 2030 Agenda and translate its 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) with 169 specific targets into action. But as well-defined as the 2030 Agenda seems, there are many contradictions between single goals and many open questions when it comes to taking action and making decisions.Read more
