Specific ​Workshop ​goals ​include: 
- ​Bringing ​together ​the ​ocean ​science, ​education, ​policy, ​and ​business/industry ​sectors; 
- ​Fostering ​the ​integration ​of ​research ​results ​from ​the ​seabed ​mapping ​and ​ocean ​observing ​communities ​into ​education ​resources ​for ​enhanced ​ocean ​literacy ​and ​decision ​making; ​and ​ 
- ​Identifying ​business ​and ​industry ​needs ​that ​will ​lead ​to ​the ​development ​of ​an ​international ​certificate ​course ​for ​business ​leaders ​and ​policymakers.
