|What do we do? - Outreach|
The EPOCA consortium combines the expertise of more than 100 scientists from different fields of marine research. The results of this multi-disciplinary collaboration are presented to the non-scientific community (business leaders, organisations and the general public) to inform about the risks and what we can do to avoid the "tipping points" related to ocean acidification (in terms of CO2 emissions targets). The EPOCA strategy aims to contribute high quality science directly to expert groups and committees, to feed information directly to policy-makers through government and inter governmental committees, to give clear information to the media with scientists knowledgeable in communication and through the formation of the EPOCA Reference User Group (RUG) of targeted stakeholders.
