Cambridge Global Challenges


This cross-disciplinary meeting will examine the modern challenges that face our marine waters, and identify ways and means to conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development.

This cross-disciplinary meeting brings together members of the marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations. The cross-disciplinary nature of the event as well as the high calibre of the selected talks means that scientists can broaden their knowledge in marine science as well as benefit from expertise and ideas gained in a range of fields other than their own.

Abstracts can be submitted to one of the following areas:

  • General Science Session
  • Multiple stressors
  • Microplastics and marine litter
  • Increasing resilience to natural hazards
  • The changing Arctic Ocean: identifying and quantifying the Arctic response to climate change
  • Understanding the Influence of Man-made structures in the Ecosystem - progressing the science

Science presentations and e-poster sessions will take place on the first two days, together with opportunities to network.

On the third day, the venue will host a number of meetings and workshops. If you would like to host a workshop or side meeting  please contact for details.
