Laura Ramajo (Chile), COP20, Lima, December 2014

"I was able to participate in the exhibition stand under the slogan HOT, SOUR AND BREATHLESS sponsored by the Plymouth Marine Lab (UK), the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Scripps Institution of Oceanography and CMBC (USA), and Centro de Investigación e Innovación para el Cambio Climático (CIICC) of Universidad Santo Tomás (Chile). Delegates and observers from around the world heard about how the increase in atmospheric CO2 is warming, acidifying and de-oxygenating the oceans with the respective ecologic, social and economic consequences."

Abed El Rahman HASSOUN (Lebanon), SOLAS Summer School 2013

"OA-ICC [...] provided for me the opportunity to present my research work to the international ocean research community, to meet experts and colleagues from all over the world and discuss with them about my results, share ideas and build a strong network with peers for future scientific collaborations."

Joint experiments

Promote and facilitate international collaboration and joint experiments, in particular efforts focusing on key fisheries or ecosystems.

Our approach

  • Support of scientific visits and encourage collaboration

    The OA-ICC intends to support a limited number of researchers to travel to international research facilities and early-career scientists for short-term visits to pre-defined host laboratories. More information here.

  • Information sharing

    Facilitate collaboration through the identification of opportunities and mapping of on-going experiments. Opportunities and useful resources will be posted below.
