The Blueprint Initiative

The Blueprint Initiative is establishing one of the world's most diverse marine science collaborations led by science end-users from the energy, fisheries, community, regulatory and government sectors active in Australia's western marine territories. The Initiative will instill collaboration as the new norm for marine science in both State and Commonwealth waters off Western Australia.

The collaboration will, for the first time, provide a framework for multiple sectors to work together on shared issues, and to improve science based policy and practice.
