SO-CHIC, coordinated by Sorbonne Université (France), consists of 16 partners from 10 different countries (France, Germany, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Italy, Netherlands, and South Africa).

The consortium has a balanced mix of expert groups in high latitude ocean observations, expert groups in ocean carbon processes, expert groups in ocean processes modelisation and parameterisation, and expert groups in climate modelling.

The consortium has also mix of 7 leading universities, 2 of the main European polar research centres, 3 national research centres, 2 SMEs, and 1 independent organisation that focuses on defining major strategic priorities, and provision of advice and communication for both the Arctic and Antarctic regions.
