Opportunities and Actions for Ocean Science and Technology
Updated: Apr 10
It was a pleasure to attend the U.S. Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology's (SOST's) "Opportunities and Actions Roundtable." It was encouraging to learn about the latest findings, R&D, and emerging tech related to ocean science and blue economy, in particular around how Ocean S&T infrastructure is leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve predictive capabilities of ocean-based climate change.
SOST is focused on advancing Federal ocean science and technology priorities and creating a more prosperous, healthy, equitable, and sustainable ocean for all. I look forward to the next event and to continuing the conversation on resilient ocean science and technology infrastructure, a diverse and inclusive blue workforce, and climate change.
About Ocean Science and Technology Subcommittee (OST)
Led by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the OST Subcommittee is composed of 30 Departments and Agencies across the Federal government.
The Ocean Science and Technology Subcommittee (OST) is the lead interagency entity for Federal coordination on ocean science and technology (S&T). The OST works to expand knowledge, provide advice, and offer recommendations regarding the advancement of ocean S&T across the Federal government and with the broader ocean community, including international activities. The OST reflects decades of ocean policy development and serves as a cornerstone to implementing the visionary coordinated ocean S&T goals across administrations, parties, and sectors.
The OST serves as a subcommittee of both the OPC and the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC). Under the NSTC, the group is referred to as the Subcommittee on Ocean Science and Technology (SOST). The purpose of the OST/SOST is to advise and assist both the OPC and the NSTC on national matters pertaining to ocean S&T.
