ICRS 2020

14th International Coral Reef Symposium – Bremen, North Germany

ICRS 2020, also known as the 14th International Coral Reef Symposium, is the primary international conference on coral reef science, conservation and management, bringing together leading scientists, early career researchers, conservationists, ocean experts, policy makers, managers and the public.

For the first time in its history, an ICRS will be held in Europe, in the cosmopolitan and historic city of Bremen, Northern Germany, 5 – 10 July 2020.

ICRS 2020 will be the key event to develop science-based solutions addressing the present and future challenges of coral reefs, which are globally exposed to unprecedented anthropogenic pressures. The five-day program will present the latest scientific findings and ideas, provide a platform to build the essential bridges between coral reef science, conservation, politics, management and the public, and will promote public and political outreach.
