Youth contest on “Insight into women in Marine Science and Technology”


Announcement of the winners of the youth creative contest „Insight into women in Marine Science & Technology”


We are excited to announce the winners of the youth creative contest „Insight into women in Marine Science & Technology.

We were gratify to receive 29 contributions from 14-18 years old youth for the period from the 4th of September until the 5th of November, 2017. We do hope that we contributed with organization of this Creative Contest to the promotion of Marine S & T as a career possibility.
