The UK Marine Science and Technology Compendium

Welcome to the UK Marine Science and Technology Compendium which has been compiled with thanks for input from across our vibrant marine science and industry community.

The database provides an overview of the UK’s marine research institutes and university departments, the marine industry sector, government bodies representing marine and marine-related Non-Governmental Organisations.

  • Proportion from the Natural Environment Research Council
  • Proportion from ‘Other Public Sector’

The database can be updated at any point but all contacts will be asked to review their entry on an annual basis.

The database was designed by Mikael Suominen, National Oceanography Centre and the content populated by the NOC Association Secretariat.
