The United Nations General Assembly, representing 193 countries, has proclaimed 2021-2030 a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. The Decade aims to ensure that ocean science supports and guides the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and in particular SGD 14, Life Below Water. All United Nations member states adopted the SDGs in 2015 and their implementation is one of the main aims of Horizon Europe, the EU’s upcoming Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2021–2027).  The Decade is an opportunity to ensure that we continue to benefit from the ocean while improving its ecological health. Six societal goals have been outlined for the Decade: A Clean Ocean, A Sustainably Harvested Ocean, A Safe Ocean, A Healthy Ocean, A Predicted Ocean, and A Transparent Ocean. These six societal goals are comprehensively addressed by the recommendations from the European Marine Board’s flagship publication: Navigating the Future V (NFV). NFV provides a holistic vision of marine science and recommends new research agendas to be developed with all stakeholders and with sustainable governance at their core. It recommends a solutions-oriented, transdisciplinary research agenda for the next decade.  This policy brief highlights the close alignment and overlap between the societal outcomes of the Decade and the five substantive science chapters of NFV, highlighting the interdisciplinary and connected nature of the global sustainability challenges we are facing.
