Who we are
The International Working Group (IWG) reports directly to the Marine Science Co-ordination Committee (MSCC). Chaired by Lowri Griffiths, Head of the Ocean Policy Unit at the Foreign, Commenwealth and Development Office (FCDO), membership is made up of representatives from a variety of government departments, devolved administrations, research organisations, national agencies and academia.
The MSCC IWG has been a hugely important group within the MSCC for many years and is directly working towards the MSCC High Level Objective 4:
"Promote and represent UK marine science at international fora, strengthening existing and building new relationships with internatioal partners including research organisations and infrastructure"
The IWG Chair attends the MSCC plenaries, which take place throughout the year.
