Co-designing the science we need for the Ocean Decade

The Ocean Decade Virtual Series

This virtual session “Co-designing the science we need for the Ocean Decade” is convened by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO in partnership with the International Science Council, as part of the Ocean Decade Virtual Series.

It will explore opportunities and challenges and discuss best practices to deliver co-designed, solution-oriented research that will lead to transformative Decade Actions with long-lasting benefits to the ocean and society.

The session will be organised in two parts:

  • Part 1 – What is co-designed, solution-oriented research in the context of the Ocean Decade?
  • Part 2 – How can we foster co-design co-production and co-delivery in ocean research during the Ocean Decade?


This session will be followed by a series of regional sessions in October and November 2020 that will facilitate discussion of regional priorities and needs for co-designed ocean science. By registering for this session you will also receive information on these upcoming regional sessions.
