The idea of this event series is to introduce a variety of different career perspectives for marine scientists of the ICBM especially outside academia.
We invite speakers who have a background in marine sciences or studied, worked at the ICBM and who are now successful working in fields other than science or academia. These can be people with a leadership, management position in industry, but also consultants, entrepreneurs, or federal ministry’s, people writing for science journals or working in science museums and similar.
Where and when?
The event takes place after work and outside the ICBM, to create an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Depending on the professional background, affiliation and position, the invited speakers are asked to give a brief overview about their activities in the job, various career steps they took to get this position and which qualifications (in particular transferable skills and competences) are required for this job. The participants get the chance to ask questions and have an informal discussion with the speaker.
The term “Fireside chat” refers to an informal meeting with a relatively small group of people who gather to talk about a specific topic in a friendly atmosphere. The term goes back to a series of thirty-one evening radio addresses given by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt between 1933 and 1944. Millions of people found comfort and renewed confidence in these speeches, which became known as the “fireside chats.”
