"The Science We Need For
The Ocean We Want"

Discover the latest science and technologies shaping the future of our oceans. At our forum, we explore the significance of marine microbiomes and how they affect our health, food, industry, and ecosystems. As part of the All-Atlantic Ocean Research & Innovation Alliance, we aim to promote sustainable marine development and cooperation in marine research and innovation. Join us in advancing our shared vision of a healthy, resilient, safe, productive, understood, and treasured Atlantic Ocean for present and future generations.

Marine Microbiome

We are on the threshold of a new and exciting era of discovery in the oceans that will shape the development of human endeavors for decades to come.

The World Ocean Day  8 June

Did you know?

  • The Ocean produces at least 50% of the planet´s oxygen (with the help of marine microbiome)

  • Oceans absorb about 30% of carbon dioxide produced by humans, buffering the impacts of global warming.
