Kieserling Foundation supports Research Network for Maritime Law

The Research Network for Maritime Law was set up by representatives of the marine industry, government, science and research in Bremen’s Chamber of Commerce on 14 August 2012.

The aim of the network is to pool existing theoretical and practical expertise in the Bremen-Oldenburg metropolitan region and bridge the gaps in training and research in the international law of the sea and maritime law.

The network’s core objectives are to engage in practice-oriented research and the training of young legal talent.

As a founding member and supporter of the network, the KIESERLING FOUNDATION is providing start-up funding of EUR 10,000 p.a. over three years.

The new research network is a point of contact for scientific questions relating to the regional and international maritime industry. Its roles include providing scientific and research advice on previously undetermined legal issues, for example in the areas of offshore wind energy and piracy, assuming consultancy assignments for companies, associations and policy makers and training young scientists and researchers. The network will also organise expert symposiums and conferences such as the renowned Bremen Seerechtstage (law of the sea days) and offer practical professional training in order to enhance the international visibility of the metropolitan region of Bremen-Oldenburg as a location for study and research.
