The Challenger Society for Marine Science is a learned society for marine scientists in the UK, aimed at advancing the study and application of marine science, encouraging collaboration across a full range of disciplines and sectors with interests in the marine sciences, holding regular scientific discussion meetings and forums, and to disseminate knowledge through blogs and publications.
We are pleased that we have increased the representation of Early Career Researchers and international researchers, and improved gender balance, at the Challenger Society science meetings. However, we also recognise that there is a long way to go for us to be a fully equitable and inclusive organisation. We would like to state our commitment to positive action to improve i) diversity monitoring and reporting, and ii) pipeline support, visibility and accessibility for underrepresented marine researchers and students, including but not limited to class, disability, ethnicity, gender, neurodiversity and sexuality.
Challenger Medal Awarded 2020 and 2022
The Challenger Society is delighted to announce the delayed award of the 2020 Challenger Medal to Prof. Alberto Naveira Garabato, and of the 2022 Challenger Medal to Prof. Carol Robinson. We are absolutely delighted to honour these two fantastic scientists in this way, and look forward to hearing their Award Lectures at the forthcoming Challenger 150 meeting at the Natural History Museum.
