About us

Dedicated to the future of our oceans

Who are Sustainable Ocean Solutions?

We are bringing together innovators, entrepreneurs, academics, policymakers, venture capitalists, and ocean industry thought leaders for an engaging and transformative summit where we will take knowledge into action.

The new connections and collaborations made in Bergen will extend beyond this event. Next summit will be in San Francisco in 2025.

Never before have we combined the most advanced marine science researchers with the most experienced and motivated investors around the common goal of developing sustainable, ethical, and transformative ocean solutions.

Bergen is known as the Silicon Valley of climate, oceanographic sciences and marine aquaculture. During the SOS Summit we will actively participate in making networks to develop new partnerships and ideas.

Our journey includes unique experiences on the water and in the water. You will be able to explore Norwegian technology such as the World’s first full-scale Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) facilities, “Northern Lights”.
