The last decade has seen a surge in calls for better integration of the best available scientific information into coastal and marine management. Despite this growing chorus of support, incorporating science into policy is no simple matter. Scientists and policymakers often run into trouble collaborating harmoniously because they are enmeshed in disparate worlds that operate with different time scales, processes, and even languages.
Ocean Science Trust is expert at living in and understanding both of these worlds. Carefully, yet boldly, we are building a bridge constructed of our independence, integrity, and knowledge that links science with policy in ways that result in better management. This is what we call Science Integration.

Increasing calls for science integration are encouraging scientists, funders, decision-makers, industry, and citizens to work together toward better outcomes. OST helps with this challenge.
