Welcome to The Ocean Training Partnership

......an international alliance  of marine science organisations that coordinates research vessel-based experiential teaching and learning.

Improving our knowledge of the ocean requires a new generation of well-trained marine scientists who are able to combine practical field work at sea with modern multi- and cross-disciplinary research methods and techniques.

By pooling infrastructure, resources and expertise, more marine science graduates can be provided with practical hands-on, ship-board technical skills and experience whilst building capacity in oceanographic observations.
