Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain) welcomed, for the first time, the studies of marine sciences in Spain in 1982. In 2022 we want to celebrate our 40th anniversary. For this reason, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will host the Marine Sciences, from July 6th to 8th, 2022, in different events under the umbrella of the VIII International Symposium on Marine Sciences (ISMS 2022) in the iconic Alfredo Kraus Auditorium.
ISMS 2022, promoted by all the Faculties of Marine Sciences in Spain (Alicante, Barcelona, Cádiz, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Católica de Valencia and Vigo), is a consolidated meeting point between marine researchers and professionals and an excellent opportunity for students and recent graduates to present the results of their Degree Final Projects. The transdisciplinary nature of the sessions and the approach to the Citizen Science will be prioritized, in order to reinforce the connections among different disciplines and between them and the society, as well as to promote a joint reflection.
