Main content

OceanStates is hosted by the University of Bergen, Norway. The main project partner is The University of the South Pacific, Fiji, and its campus network in 12 Pacific Island countries.

OceanStates has participating researchers at the University of Hawai’i, the Australian National University, and several universities in Europe and the United States. From 2021, we also have smaller sub-projects in collaboration with iTuna Solutions in Solomon Islands, Sustainable Oceania Solutions in Ma’ohi Nui (French Polynesia), and in Fiji, ManaVa Performing Arts Fiji. 

OceanStates is privileged to have an agreement of consultation with the Pacific Ambassadors at the United Nations. Similar dialogues will take place at the University of the South Pacific.

At the host institution, the University of Bergen, the project collaborates with the Bjerknes Centre for Climate Change, the Faculty of Law, and the SDG Bergen programme.
