About Us

Overview

We Are

 

The Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions (COS) catalyzes research, innovation and action to improve the health of the oceans for the people who depend on them most.  

The ocean has entered an era of upheaval, propelled by climate change, overfishing, coastal development, pollution, plastics and other stressors. These threats are resulting in unprecedented risks to ocean ecosystems and the people who depend upon them. The Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions (COS) is creating the innovations needed to support ocean health and livelihoods in the face of this upheaval.

COS catalyzes research, innovation and action to improve the health of the oceans for the people who depend on them most. To do this, we leverage the depth of expertise at Stanford, emerging technological innovations from Silicon Valley and partnerships with NGOs, companies and governments to drive impact. We strive to translate insights from research into positive change for oceans and people.

About Us

The COS Team

We leverage the particular strengths of Stanford:

  • Deep expertise across the full array of disciplines that are crucial to developing effective and enduring ocean solutions, from ocean sciences to data science, engineering, political science and business. 
  • Leadership in the data revolution and strong engagement with established and emerging leaders in the tech sector.
  • The ability to bring together business, civil society, and the public sector to solve problems. 

Drawing on these strengths, we work with researchers at Stanford and other universities to advance understanding of ocean challenges and help create new solutions.  We also forge deep partnerships with NGOs, companies, governments, and international organizations to translate insights and innovations into action to deliver impact in the water.
