Ocean Outlook is a project supported by the Norwegian Centre for International Cooperation in Education that aims to strengthen the transatlantic bonds between marine research and educational centers in Bergen, Norway (the University of Bergen, Institute of Marine Research, the Nansen Center, Uni Research, Nofima, CMR, Nifes and the University Hospital) and in the US (Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

The focal point of the project is the annual Ocean Outlook conference, which is held alternately in Bergen and in Woods Hole. The 2017 Ocean Outlook (OO17) – Seeing Under Water – conference will be held in Bergen 19-21 April and registration can be done at this webpage: http://bergenmarine.no/en/
