Ocean Sustainability Bergen aims to become a hub for scientists worldwide to create and implement the sustainable Ocean technology of the future.
Creating new and sustainable Ocean technology to harvest energy and food while reducing impact of human activities is one of the main challenges facing the world. Pollution from land based and marine sources including shipping needs to be drastically reduced over the coming decade. It is crucial that the global community finds solutions to cut emissions, not the least to save our Ocean.
Ocean Sustainability Bergen brings together scientists from the University of Bergen (UiB) and our partners worldwide to help create and implement the Ocean technology of the future. Marine renewable energy can provide electricity and hydrogen to the shipping industry as well as to shore. The initiative aims to support long-term research through close collaboration between prominent research institutions and R&D intensive companies.
