Our International Role

Our International Role

The National Oceanography Centre is active on the international stage at many forums, and as partners across UK government and European programmes.

Our work with partners in the UK, and also internationally, is part of our National Marine Capability. The NOC works with the UK and international marine science community and a variety of marine and maritime partners, in the private and government sector, to improve dialogue and sustained interaction in an inclusive, impartial way.

We focus on international engagement and the development of international partnerships, representing the UK marine science community at the European Marine Board, and leading the UK’s input to the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission.
