Jellyfish play crucial roles in marine ecosystems, providing ecosystem services often overlooked, including carbon cycling, habitat provision, and compounds with biotechnological applications. Despite their importance, understanding jellyfish mass appearances and their impacts on human activities remain limited. We interviewed Cornelia Jaspers from DTU Aqua on her experience leading the JELLY-NEXT Foresight Workshop, which aimed at bridging some important gaps.

This is the first episode of the "Researchers in the Spotlight" campaign which showcases cutting-edge research conducted within the EuroMarine Network. Meet Mark John Costello, an ecologist who has navigated the intricate waters of marine science with an unwavering passion and a determined spirit. His expertise spans biogeography, Marine Protected Areas & the profound impacts of climate change on biodiversity.


Researchers in the Spotlight

The "Researchers in the Spotlight" campaign aims to showcase cutting-edge research conducted within the EuroMarine Network. It seeks to promote the researchers achievements, foster a sense of community within the network and inspire others to explore new frontiers in marine sciences.

Through interviews with the network's researchers, the campaign provides a platform for them to share their experiences, insights, and groundbreaking research with a wider audience. Listen to the podcast to learn all about ocean biogeography, the impact of climate change on marine biodiversity, MPAs, blue carbon opportunities, seagrass meadows photosynthetic mechanisms and more.
