Drawing of an octopus and the words, HMSC Research Summit.

This year’s HMSC Research Summit is on October 17 and 18, 2023.

This is an onsite event with limited remote options. The Research Summit is a unique opportunity for our larger community to meet and engage with the diversity of research, researchers, and programs across our many organizations that make Hatfield Marine Science Center special. The Research Summit features a mix of presentations on new and innovative research at Hatfield and small discussion groups. There will also be optional workshops, tours, and social events. Lunch and snacks are provided for the full-day event. The event is free, but space is limited, and registration is required to attend.
