The National Oceanography Centre Association
The National Oceanography Centre (NOC) Association is a "strategic platform that brings together the NERC funded marine science communtity to enhance its influence on funders, policy makers and the impact that science has on society". The NOC Association provides a channel to seek input and share outputs and other information with the wider marine science community and its stakeholders. As such the NOC Association is responsive to the needs and suggestions of its members. Current activities include:
- Focusing effort on strategic matters affecting UK marine science in the national and international context.
- Developing and targeting inputs to consultations and other marine science briefings.
- Showcasing UK marine science capabilities and achievements to policy makers, industry, Learned and Professional Societies and the public
- International engagement in UK, European and International forums, to inform new funding programmes such as Horizon 2020 and the Joint Programming Initiative 'Oceans'.
