Our Oceans Challenge kicked off with a new call for action for the second cycle. The network is growing, but there is still time to join us towards a sustainable offshore industry!
OOC enables your company to identify sustainability challenges in collaboration with like-minded industry partners and solve them through our massive open innovative crowdsourcing platform. The OOC partners value innovative and sustainable future developments, by allowing their in-house “Ocean Experts” to cooperate with entrepreneurial minds through the OOC platform. OOC is still looking to grow the partner network with partners who can enrich our vision, with a minor financial contribution, but moreover by sharing their expertise to review and enhance ideas and by showing commitment!
Our Ocean’s Challenge is an exemplar of open innovation. The unique multi-stakeholder approach harnesses the value of diverse knowledge and expertise to solve complex problems. Utilizing an active online platform for building a community of participants sets the seed for robust and continued innovation in sustainability.
“Our Oceans Challenge is a unique and much needed effort to tackle the environmental challenges facing the offshore industries by harnessing the power of innovation and entrepreneurship. The World Ocean Council is proud to be an OOC partner, and is working to help ensure that the OOC addresses global, cross-cutting issues and results in improved sustainability in ocean industry operations.”
“The oceans are essential for our well-being, as a major climate buffer, a biodiversity haven and a source of much-needed resources. Global change and intensive use threaten these oceanic services. More sustainable use of the oceans calls for creative ideas and new technology. Together with students, scientists, society, governments and industry we need to explore innovative solutions. OOC is a unique platform for bringing challenges and solutions together.”
