Ocean Partnerships (OP) is a networking opportunity for connecting those interested in the marine environment and the people and communities that rely upon it.
Since December 2022, OP has had monthly sessions with the aim to connect people and foster collaborations. OP recognises the need for practitioners from different disciplines to interact, exchange experiences and ideas. Based on key marine related themes, OP will run monthly online speed networking events designed to provide opportunities for people from the sciences, arts, policy, private and public organisations to meet to discuss topics of interest and develop contact networks and possible collaborations.

The networking sessions begin with a 5 minute introduction to the networking theme and provide you with some tips on how to make the most of the networking session. You will then have the opportunity to meet online with several people for ~5 to discuss the networking theme and introduce yourself. The platform is designed to randomly introduce individuals with a view to you meeting people from different disciplines.
Exploring key challenges through different disciplinary lenses is a great way to offer new insights, spark novel ideas and future collaboration!
