Meet & Greet events with the MOSAiC team: members of the MOSAiC Arctic expedition invite you into a small circle so they can answer your questions and share their personal experiences from the Arctic. Among them will be the captain of the research icebreaker Polarstern and World Press Photo Award winner Esther Horvath. Conversations you’ll never forget!

Ask anything you’d like to know: the participants will have lots of interesting stories to tell about research and technology, cold and darkness, health and safety, expeditions and icebreakers, ocean ice and the effects of climate change in the far north.
