Description

The goal is to highlight ocean-based science and engineering successes in the areas of resilience, adaptation, mitigation and sustainability and promote scalable solutions across human, climate and ecological dimensions.

Aims

This OceanVisions initiative aims to:

1. develop a forum where scientists and engineers can discuss and exchange their research in the context of ocean solutions,
2. generate an integrated and adaptive knowledge base of science and engineering that informs ocean solutions,
3. highlight the natural and social sciences, and engineering that enable ocean solutions and raise awareness by inspiring younger generation of ocean experts and leaders, and
4. engage with stakeholders and decision-makers in order to establish a concrete pathway for translating science and engineering into applications for ocean solutions, and to develop innovative research efforts that build on synergies between academic institutions, NGOs, government and industry.
