The first leg of Science Sets Sail is now over, we docked in Riga, Latvia, and welcomed guests to a special ‘Captain’s Dinner’ and our second ‘Open Ship Day.’ You might be wondering what we’ve achieved from a scientific perspective? Before changing crews, we asked this of Prof. Dr. Axel Munnecke of ...

This summer, a sailing ship full of international scientists will bring a mini science fair to five ports on the Baltic. We hope we’ll see you at one of our Science Sets Sail ‘Open Ship Days’!
