Net Zero Oceanographic Capability (NZOC)

NZOC (Net Zero Oceanographic Capability) is a £250k scoping project funded by NERC to inform planning for the future low carbon oceanographic research capability in line with UKRI’s objectives of becoming a net zero organisation by 2040. NOC’s National Marine Facilities (NMF) division has been selected to lead a team of national experts investigating the drivers and enablers of future oceanographic research. 

The project includes 6 work packages investigating future: (i) science need, (ii) policy & regulation, (iii) ship technologies, (iv) Marine Autonomous Systems (MAS), (v) sensor systems & networks, and (vi) data ecosystems.

The project welcomes interest from UK and international academic and industry players who wish to contribute to the recommendations that will inform NERC’s strategic planning.
