Global Ocean Science Report 2020 reports on global marine research capacity

Added on 2020-12-15
Based on data collected from around the world, the second Global Ocean Science Report 2020 (GOSR2020) offers a global record of how, where and by whom ocean science is conducted. The GOSR monitors our capacity to understand the ocean and seize new opportunities for research and innovation. VLIZ director Jan Mees has personally co-shared the editorial board of the report that was be launched by UNESCO on 14 December 2020.


The GOSR2020 report arrives with new figures on the workforce, infrastructures, equipment, funding, investments, publications, data flow and exchange policies, as well as differences in national science policy strategies. In this second edition, it also covers four additional topics: the contribution of ocean sciences to sustainable development, blue patent applications, a gender analysis and capacity development in ocean science.

The Flanders Marine Institute contributed to the report as chairman of the editorial board, author and reviewer. Read on the website of the Compendium for Coast and Sea how Belgian marine science is doing.
