POI Goals

Making connections

POI aims to connect ocean users, knowledge providers and funders to ensure a healthy Pacific Ocean through the following goals:

  • Facilitate collaborative and integrated open science.
  • Share, and make widely known, existing knowledge and new research findings.
  • Promote knowledge uptake, and skills and technology transfer.
  • Encourage integration of science and community knowledge, including traditional knowledge.

Integrating the above goals through projects that are inclusive and focus on achieving robust, measurable outcomes that make a difference, POI seeks to work with individuals and organisations who share an ethos of open communication, knowledge sharing and a genuine willingness to collaborate. As an independent entity POI provides a neutral ground for safe exchange of knowledge. Effective knowledge communication is central to all POI activities. Novel and diverse communication strategies that span technology and the arts will be encouraged.
