GEOMIR is the Arctic-Asian-Indo-Pacific interregional geoscientific initiative aiming to improve the ocean floor and its relations to the continental margins knowledge and to consolidate international efforts for research ocean mineral resources within the Geosystems (coastal-ocean bed-sea water) and enable their sustainable exploitation.

The overall objective of the GEOMIR is transformative by considering geo-mapping and mineral resources data sharing by the science-based strategy based on marine expeditions, experiments and theoretical work to provide open asses of the mineral resources (ferromanganese crusts, sulphides, phosphorites, REE, noble metals, non-conventional and others) data bases. Bioresources and minerals collection «Marine GeoBioBank» for the worldwide sharing considered.
