Industry Forum

Building off of the success of our annual Public Policy Forum, the Consortium for Ocean Leadership also hosts the COL Industry Forum to identify science- and technology-based resolutions to controversial, cross-sector concerns of ocean industries. Forum topics cut across sectors; address complex (and often unresolved) science questions, broad natural resource implications, and important economic considerations; and are highly relevant to the ocean science, policy, conservation, and industry communities. These science-based, solutions-focused fora bring together industry, executive and legislative governmental entities, academic, and nonprofit stakeholders to reach consensus recommendations.
