Creating partnerships to strengthen ocean science

Our oceans are facing critical challenges as a result of human activity, including climate change, pollution, an acidification. The Pilot National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology (Qingdao), or QNLM, launched the Global Ocean Summit (GOS) in 2016, aimed at bringing together countries around the globe to solve these issues. Here we report on developments and recommendations from the second GOS—held this year in Qingdao, China—that bought together representatives from over 100 marine research institutes from 24 countries.
