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.

Many conversations about sustainability and climate-change focus on activities on land – the green part of our planet. This misses a vital part of the puzzle, the role that our oceans play.
Ocean and Coastal Futures - Bursary
As part of our commitment to encouraging and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion, Ocean and Coastal Futures is launching its first Coastal Futures Bursary in partnership with Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. This opportunity is open for young people aged 18 to 30 years old, who are currently underrepresented in the marine and coastal sector and face financial barriers to attending. Individuals do not have to be working or studying in the sector currently but must reside in the UK.
