What is Blue Observer?
Blue Observer is an oceanographic platform aiming at decarbonizing oceanography and developing innovation projects to better understand, value and protect the ocean.
Following 4 strategic axes, Blue Observer proposes a new economic model based on public-private partnerships and the transition from fundamental to applied research.
An integrated ecosystem
Blue Observer's foundations
Through our expeditions, we explore the world’s oceans and seas. We sail in little studied maritime zones and allow, thanks to our oceanographic sailing ship and our expertise, to implement the study protocols ordered by scientists.
Our approach is part of the understanding of oceanic phenomena with the aim of enriching knowledge on the functioning and the state of health of the ocean, but also to bring complementary data to fundamental research and its potential applications.
The ocean is an ecosystem conducive to innovation. It represents a bioresource of the future, carrying immense hopes and the support of many projects aiming at its protection. By supporting project leaders, Blue Observer accompanies and develops responsible innovations with high potential and a positive impact on the environment.
Informing in a rigorous way about the state of health of the ocean and mobilizing for its protection is a transversal mission of Blue Observer. Through its communication platform, the team highlights scientific content for its partners, the scientific community and the general public.
In terms of values and administration, Blue Observer is a simplified joint-stock company (société par actions simplifiées) which has its objective defined as “contributing to the understanding and protection of the oceans as well as the development of a respectful, sustainable blue growth” – and intends to make concrete commitments, including decarbonizing its process and achieving gender diversity.
