The Global Approach by Modular Experiments (GAME) is in an international programme that combines applied research with the academic training of young scientists. Every year, parallel research projects on current ecological issues are organised at different locations around the world. The research work is carried out by students who work together in bi-national pairs and who are supervised by scientists from GAME’s partner institutes. The unique GAME approach provides generalizable insights into urgent ecological issues. At the same time GAME connects GEOMAR to numerous partner institutes worldwide and creates a global network for the sustainable exchange of scientific knowledge
