After 7 years Thom Koning is handing over his responsibilities. Thom is founder of the OOC-foundation with the first initiatives taken as early as 2012.
With the still ongoing purpose of connecting the maritime & offshore industry with sustainable, innovative and viable solutions and raising industry responsibility and awareness.
Marjolein has been Board member of OOC since 2016. With the upcoming third cycle Marjolein van Noort has accepted the Chairman position with a refreshed Executive team and the Board members.
OOC believes that despite the challenges facing the ocean, there are opportunities to balance ocean protection with the responsible use and exploitation of ocean space and resources. The industry together with all its stakeholders is capable to show its responsibility. OOC enables identification of sustainability challenges in collaboration with like-minded 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 always looking for opportunities 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!
