Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


We are happy to invite you to this year’s OTC Summer School RoOT – Rostock Ocean Technology, which will take place from 22nd August to 2nd September. 16 carefully chosen participants from academia and industry will have the unique opportunity to gain insight into various interdisciplinary aspects of ocean technology, with a special focus on the five fields of innovation which make up the Cluster OTC Rostock: Subsea Mobility & Autonomy, Ocean Lense, Digital Mission, Sustainable Ocean Use, Open Innovation.

Specially tailored lectures and exercises will provide the participants with the required know-how to tackle real-world problems within various practical applications both on land and at sea (aboard Rostock's research catamaran Limanda). The program will also offer the opportunity to participate in a hackathon (with no-code/low-code options for participants that are not so familiar with coding) and to learn about advantages of open innovation, open source, networking and generally out-of-the-box thinking.

If you would like to seize this unique opportunity to improve your skill set in underwater and ocean technology, please apply for a spot via the following registration form. (Application deadline is 10th June.)
