The International Project Office (IPO) main tasks are to:

  • assist the IMBER SSC in planning and carrying out scientific research;
  • serve as a channel of communication between scientists working in different countries on various aspects of global change; and
  • assist the SSC in collating information on national and regional programmes of global change research relating to IMBER, to ensure that there is no unnecessary duplication of effort and that IMBER makes effective use of existing knowledge in its analysis of processes and change at all relevant scales.


The International Project Office (IPO) is supported by the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) and the Research Council of Norway (RCN).
