Organisation’s vision:

Within the Kiel Cluster "Future Ocean" marine scientists across eight faculties at Kiel University, GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and Muthesius University of Fine Arts and Design work together. Collectively they cover the disciplines of ocean science, geography, mathematics, material science, life science, applied mathematics, informatics and engineering, environmental economics, international law, political science, theology, philosophy, and environmental ethics.

Organisation’s mission:

Investigating ocean change and re-evaluating both the ocean's potential and the risks posed by the ocean by fostering a deep interdisciplinary understanding of the ocean system, predicting possible future states of the ocean, and developing improved ocean management regimes. The cluster is acknowledging that the complexity of societal demands on the ocean and the intricacy of the society-environment interactions that need to be better understood if humanity is to live sustainably with the oceans.
