The goal of this project is to develop the International Ocean Acidification Reference User Group (IOA-RUG) which will be part of the Ocean Acidification Association based in Monaco. In less than ten years, ocean acidification has become an issue of prime importance. Today, the priority is to capitalise on the investment of national research programmes and to facilitate the coordination of efforts on an international scale. 

The RUG is responsible for developing communication strategies geared toward the private sector in order to disseminate knowledge and scientific progress.
