Using National Capability National Public Good NOC provides dedicated support to nationwide networks that bring together stakeholders from Government departments and public bodies, academic institutes, research organisations and industry. These are key in harnessing, disseminating and coordinating information from all sectors involved in UK marine science.
Managed by our Partnerships team, NOC staff deliver secretariat support to a number of groups including the NOC Association of National Capability Beneficiaries, the Underwater Sound Forum and the MEDIN Sponsors Board.
NOC also supports the National Partnership for Ocean Prediction (NPOP). NPOP is a collaborative scientific programme between the NOC, the Met Office, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science.
In addition, NOC is a member of the Natural Hazards Partnership, which brings together expertise from across NERC-UKRI to provide scientific advice to the UK Government’s Cabinet Office on preparation response and review of natural hazards including flooding, geological hazards, volcanic ash, weather and wildfires.
