IMBeR – Integrated Marine Biosphere Research – is a large global research project which focuses on ocean sustainability in the context of global change. We want to understand past, present and future changes to the ocean. In particular, we want to know how we can achieve a sustainable ocean for the benefit of society.
IMBeR supports collaborative, disciplinary, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary and integrated research that addresses key ocean science issues generated by and/or impacting society. Such research is required to provide evidence-based knowledge and guidance, along with options for policy-makers, managers and marine-related communities, to help achieve sustainability of the marine realm under global change.
