Our Mission

What do we want to achieve

ORI’s mission is to explore the Ocean to reveal its secrets for the benefit of humankind, and to inspire a new generation of explorers. We join other Ocean science pioneers to understand the Ocean, and help open a new era of commitment to preserving Earth’s integrated systems. And we actively promote the direct engagement of tomorrow’s future scientists with ORI’s programs.

”SCIENCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE REALM OF THE UNKNOWN”

– ORI’s operational model is geared for exploring the unknown
